These were light feeling and delicious. I loved the texture of the rice paper rolls. The package directions were to soak them for 5 seconds and that was sufficient. We did not layer, we just through all of it in a bowl and mixed in the sauce and it worked well. In particular, the avocados were a really good pairing in this dish. We ate the whole bowl in one sitting. Delicious way to use up leftover cabbage.
