I love this recipe for Vietnamese Salad Rolls.
A few years ago I wanted something yummy that I had eaten at a local Vietnamese Restaurant. I looked everywhere and finally decided to come up with my own variation on the theme. I think it’s very close to the ‘real thing’.
This recipe uses Ginger Garlic Salmon, which I shared last week.
My salad roll dressing is not traditional, at least as far as I know. It’s my own ‘ACK!-I-don’t-have-the-ingredients-I-need-what-will-I-do!?!’ type recipe. But we loved it!
I’ve provided a recipe for a more traditional Vietnamese dressing as well, which we also love! Try them both and see which you like best!
Vietnamese Salmon Salad Rolls
Lettuce, finely shredded

Ginger Garlic Salmon
Large bowl with hot water (not boiling)
Vietnamese Salad Roll Dressing (see below)
- Dip one rice paper into the hot water for just a few seconds until it is pliable.
- Lay rice paper on a plate, and place desired vegetables and salmon on top.
- Spoon dressing over vegetables and salmon.
- Roll the paper around the vegetables and salmon like a tortilla, folding in the ends to keep the filling in.
Enjoy your Vietnamese Salad Rolls! These can be made just before serving, or serve the prepared ingredients and make your own at the table. Very fun!
