Salty, sweet, hot & sour. These four words describe the flavors of Thai food. Thai food is all about balance and that is one of the things I love most about it. The flavors hit your tongue on every level. There is an element of all of these tastes in every bite. The beauty of Thai food is that none of the flavors overpower the others, they all exist harmoniously on your palate and it is some of the most unique food you will ever have.
One of my favorite things to have in warmer weather are summer rolls. They are light and refreshing with a nice bit of crunch to satisfy the need for some texture. The ingredients can be anything you want them to be, so if you are in the mood for these but need to use what is already on hand, no worries.
From traditional summer rolls to the ones I’ll be making today; which are a bit of a twist on tradition, they are a great summer meal and best of all, they are easy on the wallet and on the waist.
