Bacon, grilled peaches and avocado…summer is served.

Ingredients

1-2 peaches, sliced into ¼ inch slices

1 large avocado, pit and skin removed and sliced into ¼ inch slices

¼ red onion, sliced very thin

10-12 slices Maple Leaf Natural Bacon, cooked

2 cups (500 mL) arugula, washed and dried

Fresh basil or mint or cilantro leaves

10-12 Rice paper wrappers

 

Dipping Sauces, Optional:

Peanut Sauce (2 servings)

3 heaping tbsp. (45 mL) peanut or almond butter

1 tbsp. (15 mL) tamari or soy sauce

2 tbsp. (30 mL) maple syrup

2 tbsp. (30 mL) warm water

1 – 2 tbsp. (15-30 mL) rice vinegar, optional

juice of 1 lime

1 tsp. (5 mL) red pepper flakes, optional

 

Sweet Chili Sauce (2 servings)

1/4 cup (60 mL) unseasoned rice vinegar

2 tbsp. (30 mL) tamari or soy sauce

2 tbsp. (30 mL) warm water

2 tbsp. (30 mL) maple syrup

1 clove garlic, minced or grated

1 tsp. (5 mL) red pepper flakes, or to taste

juice of 1 lime

 

Directions

Grill your peaches and avocado on a hot-oiled grill or grill-pan until slightly softened with nice grill lines on both sides (about 1 minute per side). Set aside to let cool.

Prepare your peaches, avocado, cooked bacon, arugula, onion, herb leaves, and prepare to roll.

Fill a large bowl or casserole dish with warm water. Gently dip each rice paper wrapper in the water for a few seconds, just until damp but don’t oversoak or they will be very tricky to roll.

Place the soaked wrapper on a plate or wooden board (a wooden board works really well). The wrapper will begin to absorb the water and become soft and pliable. This takes about 10 to 30 seconds and depends on the thickness of the wrappers you are using and the water temperature.

Add the fillings. On the one-third of the wrapper closest to you, place a layer of each filling (peaches, avocado, bacon, arugula, onions, herb leaves).

Start rolling the wrapper over the fillings, away from you, tucking and rolling the wrapper with your fingers. Make sure all the fillings remain within the wrapper and tuck in the sides as you roll and try to roll as tightly as possible.

Continue with remaining rice paper and fillings.

Serve immediately (with dipping sauce, if using), or make a few hours ahead and cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.

 

Notes:

They look much better with one sliced open so you can see the filling.
The fillings for these rolls are not traditional but this recipe shows a fun way to use bacon and seasonal fruit, peaches!
I have a dipping sauce recipe here but honestly these rolls do not need it.
The peaches are juicy, the avocados are creamy and the bacon is salty.
These rolls can be used as an Appetizer, main or side dish.
