Spring rolls are everything we love and dim sum. So today, we’re turning these classic appetizers into a full meal. Our Spring Roll Bowls with Garlic Kefir Lime Sauce recipe collects the crisp veggies, noodles, and seasonings that you’d find in a traditional spring roll and expands them into a spectacular salad. The crunchy cucumbers, fiery red peppers, and creamy avocado slices are made even better with our Garlic Kefir Lime Sauce. This sharp, tart topping gives the dish a pleasant kick while infusing it with probiotics, protein, and vitamin D from Lifeway Kefir.

In addition, kefir made from whole milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.Prep Time: 15 mins Servings: 2
