    1. TO START YOU WILL NEED 35 round or square rice paper wrappers.
    2. Fill a wide shallow pan with hot water and spread a dish towel nearby on a work surface.
    3. Dip a rice paper wrapper into the hot water for about 3 seconds until softened and transparent.
    4. Place the transparent wrapper onto the dish towel.
    5. Place a bit of BIB LETTUCE or ICEBURG LETTUCE on the lower third of the translucent rice wrapper.
    6. Add fillings of COOKED PROTEIN (my favorite is cooked shrimp), and roll up while adding VEGETABLE FILLINGS during the roll up process.
    7. Cut the rolled filled transparent wrappers in half at an angle to make it look fancy.
    8. Plate in a visually pleasing way and cover with a damp towel to prevent drying out.
    9. Pass around dipping sauces to diners.
