Good afternoon! Today's Disney #Recipe is from Jiko at WDW's Animal Kingdom - Jiko's Crispy Savanna Rolls -
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄4 cup diced yellow onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups fresh corn
2 cups firmly packed mixed baby lettuce
1⁄2 teaspoon coarse salt
1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1⁄2 cup soft goat cheese
4 (8-inch-square) frozen spring roll pastry wrappers
made with wheat flour, thawed
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
Vegetable oil, for frying Curry Vinaigrette
1⁄2 cup safflower oil
1⁄4 cup rice vinegar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons sambal olek (Asian chili paste)
2 teaspoons honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1⁄4 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh dill
Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat and add onions. Cook for 3 minutes, until softened, then add garlic; sauté 2 to 3 minutes.
Add corn and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, until corn is tender.
Add lettuce and cook for 3 minutes, until wilted. Add salt and pepper. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Add goat cheese and stir until well combined.
Cut wrappers in half diagonally, forming two triangles. With the long side of one triangle nearest you, put 2 tablespoons filling along middle of long edge of triangle and shape filling into a thin log. Fold left and right corners of wrapper over filling, overlapping slightly. Dab top corner with egg yolk, then roll up wrapper away from you into a long thin roll, making sure ends and filling stay tucked inside. Place on a tray, seam side down. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, keeping tray of rolls loosely covered until ready to fry.
Heat 11⁄2 inches of oil in a heavy-bottom stockpot over medium-high heat until it reaches 365 degrees. Working in batches, fry rolls for 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
Place oil, vinegar, lemon juice, sambal olek, honey, garlic and curry powder in a blender. Process until smooth. Add dill, and stir to combine. Serve vinaigrette with Crispy Savanna Rolls.
FYI: "Fantasmic" will now be shown daily with two performances at 8:45pm and 10:45pm with its new FastPass option and new dining packages.

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With Christmas time in full gear, expect it to be very busy in both parks this week. Even with the rain, expect it to still be busy. As more schools are released for break, expect this weekend to be very busy too. For Disneyland Park, expect CIs to be in the low 80s to low 90s and for DCA, expect CIs to be in the high 70s to high 80s.
