Step 1

Preparation for Summer Rolls: Cut the melon in half, remove the seeds, peel and slice the flesh into strips.

Step 2

Prepare a large bowl of warm water and a working area covered with a damp dish towel. Start dipping your wrappers in the water, one at a time, for a minute or so, until it begins to soften. Don't keep the wrapper in the water too long to prevent tearing.

Step 3

Place each wrapper on a damp dish towel (one at a time) and begin to fill it. Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto in the middle of the wrapper, followed by cabbage, 1-2 melon strips, carrots and herbs.

Step 4

Fold the bottom part of the wrapper over the filling, followed by the sides, then roll it tightly.

Step 5

Serve right away with the sauce or keep covered with a damp dish or paper towel until ready to serve. These rolls are best when eaten within a day or two.

Step 6

Preparation for Tamarind Dipping Sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together all of the ingredients thoroughly. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
