The sheer rice wrappers are like windows, revealing the colorful layers of veggies, noodles and steak inside these refreshing rolls. A mandoline or Japanese slicer makes easy work of slicing ingredients paper thin (or use a very sharp knife).
Yields 8 summer rolls (2 per person).
Special equipment: a mandoline
Combine the yogurt, dill, cucumber, 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Prepare the rice vermicelli according to the package directions. Drain, pat dry and set aside.
Preheat an outdoor grill or a grill pan to medium high.
Grill the onions until charred, about 3 minutes per side. Separate the onion rounds into individual rings.
Sprinkle the steak with salt and pepper. Grill until nicely charred and medium rare, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let rest for 10 minutes, then trim and slice on the bias and against the grain into 24 long strips.
Build the summer rolls: Fill a large bowl with water. Working one at a time, submerge a rice wrapper in the water until pliable. Lay out on a paper towel. Arrange a row of radishes in the center of the wrapper. Put a row of the herbs on one side and a row of alternating carrots and cucumbers on the other. Top all the veggies with a single layer of spinach, then 3 slices of steak, 3 small onion rings and one-eighth of the noodles. Top with another single layer of spinach leaves. Fold in the sides and roll up like a burrito. Cover with a damp paper towel. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve with the dip on the side.
