BLT Summer Rolls

BLT Summer Rolls Inspired by My Healthy Dish

These Summer Rolls are a light and refreshing take on your traditional BLT. They’re adapted from a recipe in My Nguyen’s cookbook, My Healthy Dish. A creamy homemade dressing comes together quickly, and it perfectly complements the salty crunch of rolls.

A meal is only as good as the ingredients that go into it, so I want to touch on a couple of ingredients in this recipe, namely the bacon and mayo. You might hear people in the “health world” tell you to steer clear, but I disagree. I’m not afraid of (healthy) fats, and I can totally get down with some bacon and mayo as long as I know they’re high quality.

What are the right choices when it comes to bacon and mayo?

  • For bacon, avoid anything with added sugars, nitrates, and nitrites. Look for an option with one or two ingredients – pork and possibly salt. 
  • For mayo, avoid anything with added sugars, ingredients you can’t pronounce, and highly refined vegetable and/or seed oils. It’s super easy to make at home - see my Be Well Mayo. Or if you want something convenient and ready made, go with any Primal Kitchen mayos (use code KELLYSFAVORITES). 

This is a complete, blood sugar-balancing Fab Four meal. It has protein (bacon), fat (mayo), fiber (avocado), greens (butter lettuce). Together, these four components combine to create a meal that balances your blood sugar, calms your hunger hormones, and keeps you feeling full for hours.

Rice Paper Wraps:

  • 8-10 slices of nitrate-free bacon, chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 head of butter lettuce, chopped
  • 1 pack of rice paper
  • 1 avocado, sliced


  • 1 large avocado
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup Primal Kitchen Mayo
  • Himalayan pink salt to taste


  1. Line baking sheet with bacon strips and place into cold oven.
  2. Turn on oven and set heat to 375 degrees. Cook for 15 minutes.
  3. To create the dressing, add garlic cloves to high-speed blender and blend until minced, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. 
  4. Once the bacon is ready, drain grease, pat bacon dry.
  5. Fill a shallow bowl half way with cool water.
  6. Dip the rice paper for about 2 seconds and then immediately lay flat on your workspace. If the rice paper soaks for too long, it becomes soggy and hard to fold.
  7. Center the ingredients vertically, layered however you'd like, positioned about 2 inches from the lower edge.
  8. Pull up the bottom so there's good support, then roll up the rice paper from one side to the other. Repeat this process until you use up all the ingredients. Serve with homemade dressing.
