  7. Add a small bundle of the cooked rice noodles, a few pieces of pork and remaining fresh greens on top.
  8. Above the lettuce, add the shrimp, with the pink side down.
  9. Fold the left and right sides of the rice paper inwards.
  10. Lift the bottom part of the rice paper upwards, folding it over the placed ingredients and roll forward.

  12. To make the dipping sauce, add all ingredients to sauce pan.
  13. Using a whisk thoroughly mix all ingredients.
  14. Bring to a simmer and turn off heat. Serve with crushed peanuts on top, if desired.
