*1 box thin rice noodles
24 medium-sized raw shrimp
1 package mint leaves
1 bunch cilantro
8 lettuce leaves
2 large carrots
Spring Roll Directions:
Peel and seed 1/4 of a cucumber. Julienne the cucumber, and place on a plate in eight separate piles.
Peel and julienne (or shred) carrots onto a place into eight piles.
Peel the skin off of 1/2 of an avocado. Slice the avocado half into eight slices.
Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Place 1/4 of the package of rice noodles into the boiling water. Remove from heat and let sit for three minutes. Drain the noodles, and then place them on a plate to cut them into eight even piles.
Deshell and devein the shrimp. Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Boil the shrimp for about three minutes or until they turn pink. Drain the shrimp, and place into a small bowl.

Fill a large bowl or baking dish with about one inch warm water.
Place one rice wrapper into the warm water for about 30 seconds. Carefully remove the wrapper from the water, and place it on top of the wet paper towel.
Layer your ingredients by placing three shrimp across the middle of the wrapper. Top with two mint leaves, four to six cilantro leaves, one slice avocado, one pile carrots, one pile cucumbers, one pile rice noodles, and one lettuce leaf, leaving about 2 inches uncovered with ingredients on each side.
Fold the non layered sides inward, and then tightly roll the wrapper.
