Sweet, succulent crab meat stars in this dish, which can either be used as an appetizer, a side dish, or even an entree.  Be sure to use real crab meat; the imitation stuff has added sugars.  Healthy Spring Rolls with real crab are just one of many great examples of how clean eating doesn’t have to be boring!

Notes

Don't be disappointed if your first few tries with rice paper don't turn out as beautiful as you'd hoped.  It takes practice, so keep trying!
We used fresh basil and fresh cilantro, but any combination of fresh herbs will be delightful.
