For the Sesame Ginger dipping sauce:
To wrap the veggie rice paper rolls:
Have all the cut veggie filling items ready near a cutting board.
Fill a large bowl with water, dip the rice paper wrapper in the water and turn in around several times for about 15-20 seconds. It will soften more on the board, and become very pliable.
Remove the wrapper, and hang the edge off the end of the cutting board.
Place the fresh basil leaf down pretty side down first to show through the wrapper.
Next, add one of each veggie in the middle of the wrapper, but try not to over fill.
Fold up the bottom first, then the sides, then roll wrapper tight against the filling all the way to the end.
Serve on a plate with a small bowl of dipping sauce.
Garnish with sesame seeds.
