SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - This recipe requires no cooking and is fun to prepare. The smoked salmon pairs well with the fresh ingredients, and you can also leave out the salmon for a vegetarian spring roll that is just as delicious. These are great as a light lunch, midday snack or appetizer served with miso dipping sauce. They can be made a day ahead, stored covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve, enjoy!
