Recipe : Sprout Salad
I'd been out this evening and came home about the same time as the husband, so dinner wasn't ready but he was quite hungry. Instead of just opening a packet of something for him to snack on, I now have to think of quick and easy snacks to put together that are also healthy and not fried/bought from a store.(Doctor's orders)
I had some grams sprouting in a bowl. So I just quickly tossed this salad together. Didn't even need to make a dressing. So its a one bowl dish too and if you have sprouts handy, its really fast. This dish is completely raw and suitable for those on a raw diet too.
1 katori sprouts
1 katori finely chopped cucumber (you can mix this with tomatoes too, but total volume should remain the same)
1 small onion chopped fine (you can reduce this quantity if you don't like onions)
salt to taste
juice of half lemon
Take the finely chopped cucumber and onions, toss it with the sprouts.
Sprinkle salt and squeeze the lemon juice over the salad.
Toss it gently so the sprouts dont break.
If this was for me, I'd break in a finely sliced green chilli too
