    The fillings here are not traditionally Vietnamese, but they are examples of the endless possibilities for spring rolls. This recipe is not paired with a dip because the bacon is already quite salty. For dip ideas see our other spring roll recipes .   dishes, which we can never get enough. Before they ever reached out to us to collaborate on a tapas party shoot, we had their dishes stocked high in our studio s prop room already. So adding a few more pieces to our collection was an easy yes . Pull our arms, why don t cha?
