This is the Farmers Market Week series and today we are talking cucumber and fresh rolls. In late summers, cucumbers go on sale and how many bottles of pickles can we make with them - 4 bottles or 10 bottles? I recently started making fresh batch of cucumber pickles and I have to tell you guys, fresh pickle taste way better than bottled ones. So I am not pickling cucumber this season – okay not more than 2-3 bottles.

However, cucumber is my favorite summer veggie and I always explore different ways to use it in my cooking.

Today’s Cucumber Fresh Rolls scream my love for cucumber and fresh rolls. Fresh Cucumber and sweet peaches with sweet basil – the best way to enjoy farm fresh veggies.

I never had fresh rolls until few year back when I ate’em accidentally. Vishal and I were on a Vegas trip. We reached late night and there were not many options to eat. Or I should say we were so tired that we hardly looked for options. We ended up in a late night eatery where he ordered fish sandwich and I ordered fried spring rolls. Instead of fried rolls, I got someone else’s fresh shrimp roll order. Since Vishal now had to wait till waitress correct my order, I decided to eat fresh rolls and call it a day. Just finish meal, go to the room and sleep as fast as possible.

But those fresh rolls - which I was eating with weird expressions - were delightful.

So good that I thought about writing a review for bad service and I dropped that idea once I ate’em. In-fact since then I started experimenting a lot with flavor of fresh rolls at home.

My accidental shrimp rolls were: shrimp, mango and avocado rolls. However, today I am sharing a vegetarian fresh roll recipe with you.

Pour the warm water in a deep wide dish like deep plate or wide saute pan. Insert one rice paper into the water and rotate it once in water till all paper is soaked just once in water. Remove and lay it on a cutting board. Place two basil leaves at the bottom. put two pieces of each veggie on the top lengthwise.

Towards the end, fold both open ends inside and roll over the rest of paper. I am no fresh roll wrapping expert guys, butt I can tell you these fresh fillings taste amazing with rice wrapper around'em. Additional Notes: In photo, you can see, rice roll towards the end of rolling where you will need to fold in the open ends inside.
