For each summer roll – also follow package instruction.
Soak the rice paper in room temperature water just until it is able to be folded but still keeps its shape, it will continue to soften as you complete each roll.
Lay flat on cutting board.
Place the ingredients just to your side of center, make a base of lettuce, add a small pile of the rice stick and then cucumber, bean sprouts, green onion and finally the tentacles lined side by side about 5-6 pieces.
Fold in the sides and roll moderately tight, it will naturally seal from the rice starch.
Serve whole or cut in half with the Peanut Sauce.
