Vegetable Rolls and Peanut Butter Sauce

Yesterday’s post talked about trying out new appetizers as sustitutes for some of our fried fat-laden options. This recipe is simple, delicious, and can be a fun activity for parents and kids to do together. The winner though, is that dipping sauce. You will want to use the sauce for anything and everything around – TRY IT and tell me I’m wrong.
