Arrange 2 Tbsp. mixed cabbage to cover half the sheet of rice paper, leaving a ½" border. Spoon about ¼ cup rice mixture over cabbage mix; spread evenly. Arrange about ⅛ cup tuna mixture over rice. Sprinkle with carrots and green onions.

Fold side of rice paper over filling. Starting with filled side, roll up jellyroll-fashion. Cut each roll in half diagonally.
