Sprouted Mung Bean Asian Salad #TheSaladBar

 

Sprouted Mung Salad

Sprouted Mung Bean Salad with tender snap peas, grated carrot, Napa cabbage and spring onion tossed with a zesty homemade Asian dressing! Healthy, nutritious with a crisp crunch, sprouted mung beans add a powerful punch to this Asian inspired salad. My Monthly Salad Bar group is doing an “Asian inspired” salad theme and I jumped in with sprouted mung bean salad. I paired the salad with a simple sesame oil, rice vinegar dressing with a hint of ginger.  Add a sprinkle of sesame seeds and my Asian sprouted mung bean salad is ready to serve. I love this salad so much I can eat it without any dressing.

How to sprout beans:

Soak a cup of raw beans in water overnight.  Drain and place the soaked beans in a colander or any dish with holes at the bottom. Cover with a wet paper towel and in a few hours the sprouts start to appear.  Keep the beans moist by covering with a wet paper towel till the sprouts grow at-least ¼ inches.
