here is a wonderful recipe for the Asian favorite served in many restaurants. this is an easy recipe, and the egg rolls are extremely tasty. as with any home prepared food, the cook controls the ingredients and can alter the recipe according to dietary preferences. i have used this recipe for years, and have adapted it to my liking. it was taken from southern living magazine, the November 2009 issue.
to prepare the egg rolls: stir together 16 ounces of shredded coleslaw mix, 1 cup of chopped cooked chicken or shrimp, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of minced ginger. i use ginger from a tube found in the produce aisle of the market.
egg rolls can be served with cranberry dipping sauce or any other favorite dipping sauce. shrimp, chicken or vegetable fried rice is an nice accompaniment.
