Step 1

Bring a medium saucepan filled with water to a boil. Add rice noodles and shrimp; cook 2 minutes or until shrimp and noodles are done. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain.

Add warm water to a large shallow dish to a depth of 1 inch. Place 1 rice paper sheet in dish; let stand 30 seconds or until soft. Place a dry kitchen towel on a work surface. Place rice paper sheet on towel.

Place 3 shrimp on bottom third of sheet, leaving a 2-inch border. Top with 2 tablespoons cabbage, 4 mint leaves, 1 teaspoon peanuts, one-fourth of the chile, and 1/4 cup cooked rice noodles. Fold bottom of sheet over filling. Fold sides of sheet over filling; roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting with filled side.

Gently press seam to seal. Place roll, seam side down, on a serving platter (cover to keep from drying). Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers, shrimp, cabbage, mint, peanuts, chile, and noodles.

Combine green onions and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Serve with summer rolls.
