Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

The most delicious way to eat raw veggies as far as I'm concerned!  My friend Mika taught me how to make these.
Spring roll wrappers (The dry ones, not the fridge/freezer ones. 
I had to go to the international market to get these)
Green onions
Fresh Basil
Then any raw veggies you want like:
Green Pepper
Grilled Tofu

Dipping Sauce:
Peanut Butter
Soy Sauce
Chili Sauce
Lime Juice
Brown Sugar

Stir up the dipping sauce.  Slowly stir in some water (about 1/8 cup) to peanut butter (1/3 cup) till thinner.  Add a little bit (1 Tbl?) of brown sugar (if using unsweetened peanut butter), about 2 Tbl soy sauce, 2 tsp. chili sauce, and a squirt of lime juice.
Put a little bit of water on a plate or dish.  Put a dry wrap in water for 5 seconds, then flip over and put in water for 3 more seconds.  The wrap will start to be pliable.  Place on another plate, add some filling including a little bit of green onion and basil in each wrap.  Fold in ends and roll up.  Enjoy with dipping sauce.
