Avocado Egg Rolls with Sweet Cilantro Dipping Sauce

We LOVE the Cheesecake Factory avocado egg rolls...this one is a copycat recipe I found online...they are excellent!
*EDIT: I made some changes to this recipe after finding a better one over here. LOVE! these turned out just perfect!*

(Yields 6 large rolls)

2 large avocados, peeled and diced
3 Tbs. sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
2 Tbs. minced red onion
1 tsp. fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp. salt
6 egg roll wrappers

In food processor, or by hand, finely dice tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.

Gently stir together avocado, salt, and tomato mixture. Distribute filling evenly in a line on bottom third of each egg roll wrapper.

Position a wrapper so a corner is pointing toward you; fold the bottom corner up over the filling. Fold side corners in and roll toward the top corner. Wet the edges of the top corner with a little water. Then fold top corner over and press to seal. Repeat with remaining wraps.

Heat 2-3 inches of oil to 350 degrees (I use a candy thermometer to maintain a consistent temperature, since its constantly changing). Cook egg rolls for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Slice rolls on the diagonal and serve hot with cilantro sauce.

Sweet Cilantro Dipping Sauce

1/4 c. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 c. Honey
1/2 c. chopped cashews
2/3 c. fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves
2 green onions
1 Tbs. granulated sugar
1 tsp. ground black pepper
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 C. Olive Oil

Put all ingredients except olive oil into a blender or food processor. Blend until well pureed. Stream in olive oil. Refrigerate until ready to use.
