Vegetable Spring Rolls with Wasabi Mayo

The perfect dish for meatless Monday. Not going meatless? Add chicken, smoked salmon, shrimp, or crab (see my additional filling ideas below). Have fun with this recipe - you can add anything you want! Also, serve the wrappers with horseradish and curry paste on the side for dunking.
