Sara over at Three Clever Sisters recently tagged me to participate in a “food holiday tag” menu. The rule is to share menu suggestions of a couple of dishes previously posted on your blog for an upcoming food holiday, with photos and links to the recipes. Then, you tag 10 more bloggers. I told Sara I didn’t have time to participate, but then I thought about it again and realized I had a holiday coming up. Not an official holiday, though. But I want to celebrate the end of me eliminating almost all fruit and vegetables from my menu for a couple of weeks which was due to the scary E.coli outbreak here in Germany. Thus, I picked a couple of dishes that feature (raw) fruit and vegetables. Here you go.

This month’s chef for the Twitter Chef Avatar Fun is Jacques Pépin. My first idea was to make Ricotta Dumplings with Red Pepper Sauce, but Abby got to them before me and she was rather disappointed with the result, so I thoughtI’d look for a different recipe. Et voilà: I decided to make Rice Paper Rolls with Avocado and Sun-Dried Tomato. These are raw spring rolls, and you can fill them with virtually everything, but I thought the avocado, sun-dried tomato and scallions were a perfect combination. I really loved them, hubby liked them and the kids absolutely disliked them. Well, not every recipe can be a winner, huh? I guess, next time I’ll have to make them for my lunchbox ;-).
