SPRING ROLLS: Place lettuce leaves, carrot, and the other filling ingredients in separate bowls. Fill a large sauté pan with water and heat until hot. Place a clean dish towel on a flat surface. Submerge one rice paper wrapper in sauté pan water for a few seconds (not too long) until pliable. Lay wrapper on towel. Place one lettuce leaf in the middle of the wrapper and layer your choice of other ingredients on top. Do not overstuff (however tempting). Fold edges over the filling and roll it up like a burrito. Dip spring roll into sauces and savor your finger feast.
