ISO Sauce Recipes for Spring Rolls

Here is what I plan to make for the spring rolls.I need help with amounts.Ill be using 22cm/8.6" Banh trang skins.Need enough to serve 2 people,almost 3.
Kale lacinato
Black beans &/or baby lima beans(green)
Black/forbidden rice
Traditional/gold quinoa
Yucca root,its very similar to potato
Yellow onion
Chicken breast
Cayenne pepper

Idk if any of these added will make it better,or make it awful:
Chinese 5 spice
I have a few ideas for a dipping sauce,but still debating.
Soy sauce,fish sauce,oyster sauce,Tiny dab of dave's original hot sauce & a few drops of sesame seed oil.I got kikkoman orig,lee kum kee orig & double ferm,& san-j shoyu soy.Thai fish sauce & haven't got oyster yet.Lee kum kee $7 & dynasty $2 are only two I can find.
I thought of making the sauce or just buying prepared guacamole or some kind of pesto.

I'd be careful with the 5 spice powder...it can take over in a hurry.

Guac could be awesome!
I think the sauce you described sounds a little much though, I'd probably either nix the soy/oyster combo or nix the fish sauce but I wouldn't combine the three. That's just me though. I'm not sure how acidic the Dave's sauce is but I think it sounds like the sauce could use some acidity to cut through the heavy fried rolls, and me I'd choose lime juice and balance it with sugar. Ground peanuts might make the sauce good too but that's iffy with some of the filling, namely the rosemary. If you add cumin, I'd think about balancing it with a sweet spice otherwise it might not play well with the others. Thyme doesn't sound good, turmeric is almost flavorless but it'll make everything yellow, paprika could be good but I'd use it to season the chicken instead of the dish and C5S would work but be careful with it!

Sir Loin of Beef has given you some great sauces. To those I will add a sauce that is so simple and tasty, that it's ridiculous. Combine 4 oz. Ketchup with 1 tsp. powdered mustard, and 1/8 tsp. wasabi powder. Stir and let sit.

More complex dipping sauce - Pineaqpple Sweet & Sour Sauce:
2 cups chicken broth
2 pinches 5-spice powder
1 tsp. granulated onion powder
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic powder
3 tbs. Kikoman Soy Sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup vinegar
12 oz. chuck pineapple with can juice.
Cornstarch slurry

Bring the first 8 ingredients to a slow boil over medium heat. Adjust the amount of brown sugar and vinegar until the sauce has just the right profile for you. Thicken with the cornstarch slurry. Let cool and serve.

That sweet and sour sauce can be modified by using lemon and white sugar instead of pineapple and brown sugar. Or you can make it apricot, plumb, or peach based. You can change it just about any way you want. Be creative. Add a llittle chopped green pepper, or your favorite hot pepper.

Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
Fish sauce

Mix to taste, typically about equal parts Sweet Thai to Mirin(sauce should be loose), must have fish sauce, it adds so much depth and great flavor. The Ginger and Cilantro, I leave coarse as it's refreshing to get a little nibble of each in the dip.

If you want heat, please don't use an American, vinegar based sauce, get a little $3 jar of sambal, SO MUCH BETTER, and it provides that clean, intense flavorful heat that "hot sauce" lacks. . . .even some siracha would work better than hot sauce, imo.
