To make the summer rolls: First, pour warm water into an 8-inch square baking dish. Working one at a time, wet a rice paper wrapper for 20-25 seconds and then transfer to a work surface like a cutting board.

Place a lettuce leaf, a few basil leaves, some mint and cilantro in the center of the wrapper. Top with a few carrots, a little cabbage, a few red bell pepper, cucumber, avocado and mango slices.

Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the filling and then folding in the sides, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the wrapper is reached, being careful not to tear the rice paper. Cover with a damp paper towel while you repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and filling. Store in the refrigerator or serve immediately with the peanut sauce.
