Add sweet and sour sauce, toss to coat, and set aside.

Dip rice papers in a bowl of hot water and drain off excess.
Place on damp kitchen towel to fill. One at a time works best!
In the center of a rice paper place several cilantro leaves and thin shreds of green onion.
Top with about 1/2 cup of the filling.
Fold one edge over the filling, fold in sides, and roll up.
Serve with the dipping sauce.
