Salad rolls are a simple, balanced and delicious snack or meal for the whole family.  I love how versatile they are and perfect for picky eaters.  Letting the whole family build them together is also a great dinner prep activity.  I’ve provided a few of my favourite more unique recipes, including a deconstructed version for anyone who might have difficulty wrapping.  Simply chop up different toppings, let everyone pick their own and enjoy!  Looking for something even simpler?  Order our NEW Chicken and Mango Salad Roll Bento Box – coming soon.
