To Prepare

Directions for the Summer Rolls: Gather and prepare all ingredients, including a container of hot water large enough to dip the rice paper. To assemble the summer rolls, dip the rice paper (one at a time) in the water just quickly enough to soften them. Lay the rice paper on a clean, flat surface. Working from left to right, place a piece of lettuce in the center. Top with rows of the herb 
leaves and follow with rice noodles, shrimp, Texas watermelon and a couple of pieces, each, of the remaining ingredients. 
Roll tightly, folding in the sides like a burrito. Place in a container, and cover with a slightly damp cloth. Repeat until you have the desired amount of spring rolls. Refrigerate until ready to eat, but not more than several hours. 

Directions for the Dipping Sauce: Place all ingredients in a saucepan over a medium-low flame. As the ingredients warm 
up, stir and combine them. Continue to cook until everything has come together and formed one sauce. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator. Refrigerated sauce should be rewarmed for a thin consistency.
