Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.



1 cup fresh basil

½ cup cilantro

2 leaves lettuce

1 cup cooked rice noodles

8 rice paper sheets

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

¼ cup low sodium soy sauce

½ teaspoon sesame seed oil

1 scallion

Instructions

Cut the carrot, avocado and cucumber into thin, 1-inch long matchstick strips. Chop basil, cilantro and lettuce. To assemble, dip rice paper sheets (one at a time) into warm water so that they become pliable. Arrange 1/8th of the vegetable strips in the middle of the rice paper, sprinkle with chopped herb mixture and 2 small spoonfuls of rice noodles. Fold over two ends of the rice paper sheet, then wrap up like a burrito, making it as tight as possible. Repeat until all eight spring rolls are made. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl to make the dipping sauce. Makes eight spring rolls.
