1/2 starch, 1/2 fruit, 1 vegetable, 1/2 lean meat, 1 fat
1 oz dried rice noodles
1 Tbsp peanut sauce
4 12-inch Vietnamese salad roll wrappers
3 oz cooked and peeled shrimp, without tails, cut in half lengthwise
1 medium avocado (halved, cut into 12 slices)
1 medium mango, julienned into 12 pieces
1 cup red leaf lettuce
1/4 cup tightly packed, fresh Thai basil (torn)
1/4 cup tightly packed, fresh mint (torn)
1 oz packaged radish sprouts
Bring a small pot of water to a boil over high heat. Place the rice noodles in a small, heat-resistant bowl. Pour in boiling water to cover them. Let stand until softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer the noodles to a fine-mesh sieve. Drain well. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the peanut sauce. Set aside.
Fill a large container (big enough to fit the salad roll wrapper) with warm water. Working with 1 wrapper at a time, soak the wrapper in the water until just pliable but not limp, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a work surface. On the wrapper, layer as follows: the shrimp, avocado, mango, lettuce, basil, mint, and sprouts. Top with the rice noodles. Fold the bottom of the wrapper over the filling. Fold in the ends, rolling like a burrito into a tight cylinder.
Transfer the rolls with the seam side down to a plate. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and refrigerate.
To serve, cut the rolls into thirds using a wet knife. Transfer to a serving platter.
Tip: Wood surfaces are best when working with salad roll wrappers. They tend to stick to plastic cutting boards.
