- Cut the carrot into thin strips of 1 cm thickness and add them into a bowl.
- Cut the pepper into strips, just like the carrot, and add them into the bowl.
- Halve the radicchio, cut it into thin slices of 0,5 cm thickness, and add it into the bowl with the rest of the vegetables.
- Add the basil leaves, the salt, the pepper, the sesame oil, and mix the vegetables of the bowl with a serving spoon.
- Fill a large bowl with cold water. Dip a rice paper wrapper into the bowl and let it sit in the water for 5 seconds until it starts softening. You do not want it to soften too much as you won’t be able to roll it.
- Remove the wrapper from the bowl and place it over a tea towel.
- Take a few of the vegetables and place them in the middle of the wrapper.
- Fold the one side of the wrapper so to cover the filling. Then, fold the two vertical sides. Roll the wrapper with the filling until it is sealed and there is a nice roll.
- Transfer to a plate and repeat the same process for all the remaining rice paper wrappers.
- Serve with the sweet and sour sauce in a bowl, basil leaves, and lime slices.
