    2       oz           Thin rice vermicelli
    8                    Rice paper circles (8 1/2
                         -inches in diameter)
    4       lg           Lettuce leaves, ribs
                         -removed, leaves halved
    1       lg           Carrot, shredded
    2                    Mangoes, peeled and sliced
      1/2   c            Fresh basil leaves
      1/2   c            Fresh mint leaves
    4       oz           Fresh bean sprouts (1 cup)
                         Spicy Thai Vinaigrette
                         -see recipe
   Soak vermicelli in 2 cups warm water for about 15 minutes. Drain and set
   Dip sheet of rice paper in warm water (approximately 110 degrees) and
   transfer to work surface that is covered with a damp kitchen towel. Wait
   about 30 seconds or until wrapper is pliable. Place a lettuce leaf on the
   bottom two-thirds of the rice paper, leaving a 2-inch border of paper on
   the bottom.
   Place 2 tablespoons vermicelli, 1 tablespoon shredded carrots, 2 slices of
   mango, 1 tablespoon each of basil and mint, and 2 tablespoons bean sprouts
   on top of the lettuce.
   Fold up the bottom 2-inch border of rice paper over the filling. Fold
   upward again to enclose the filling. Fold in the right, then the left edges
   of the wrapper. Continue folding until a tight cylinder is formed. Transfer
   to a serving tray and cover with a damp paper towel. Continue filling and
   rolling until all ingredients are used up.
   Serve with Spicy Thai Vinaigrette as a dipping sauce.
   Note: If you are in a hurry, simply julienne all the filling ingredients;
   toss well to combine and use to fill the wrappers.
   Makes 8 spring rolls.
