Fresh Lumpia Salad

Fresh Lumpia Salad

Not all lumpia* is fried! There is a version called Lumpiang Sariwa or Fresh Lumpia.  Traditionally it’s made with a soft wrapper that is filled with fresh lettuce and vegetables that have been lightly stir fried.  In our version, we are turning it into a salad with a sweet and sour crunchy peanut dressing made with our NAKED CRUNCH Organic Peanut Butter.
