A question for you. How do we refer to the the fresh vegetable, wrapped in rice paper, uncooked rolls? Are they correctly called Spring rolls, also?

Is it okay to use the same term for the cooked, wrapped in wonton and fried rolls?

Long time ago, I heard the Chinese called Spring rolls are those made with very thin wrapper then deep fry . And then when the Vietnamese came, they make these fresh rolls and call them Spring Rolls .

I prefer to call those fresh ones Salad Rolls since they are made with fresh herb, bean sprouts, boiled pork and shrimp, more like a salad to me . And to translate directly from Vietnamese they should be called "Salad Rolls" since the Vietnamese call them "Goi cuôn " . Goi = Salad, Cuôn = Roll
