Sprouted Salad

How about a having a healthy bowl of salad everyday? There are tons of recipes of salad and in minutes it is prepared, but still we have an excuse of not having it. I thought of having balance diet in terms of nutrition value viz., protein, fat, carbohydrate, sodium salt, calcium, vitamin C and antioxidants, magnesium etc. Just think instead of having protein rich or other rich energy bar, if we have bowl of salad then we are having all mentioned in our diet. Isn't it great?


1 cup of sprouted moong beans
2 grated carrots
1/2 cup corn
5-6 strawberry
1/2 cup chopped lettuce
2-3 tbsp raisins
1.5 tsp olive oil
2tsp lemon juice

Next day morning drain water and transfer moong beans into thin cotton cloth and tie it.

Open the tie and transfer sprouted moong beans to siever and wash with cold water.
Refrigerate for latter use.

In a bowl , take sprouted moong beans.
Add grated carrot, chopped lettuce, corn, raisins and strawberry to it.
