Gỏi Cuốn - Spring Roll

Gỏi Cuốn - Spring Roll, originally uploaded by Y-Shumin.

And as I'm on a Spring theme, how about fresh Spring Rolls?

Photo note:

"A summer roll or spring roll (Vietnamese: gỏi cuốn; literally "mix salad rolled") is a Vietnamese food consisting of pork, shrimp, herbs, bún (rice vermicelli), and other ingredients wrapped in rice paper. Vietnamese Spring/Summer rolls are served cold, and are not fried.

On the menus of some Vietnamese restaurants, gỏi cuốn is translated into English as "spring roll." However, gỏi cuốn literally translates as "mixed salad roll" as noted above. Both the names Spring and Summer are not literal translations of the Vietnamese counterparts. These salad rolls are easily distinguished from other ones, by the fact that they are not fried and that the ingredients used are different. Summer Roll or Spring Roll are variants of different cultures.
