A great way to incorporate sprouts into your diet. This nutritious, protein and fibre-rich salad is also easy to make. Sprouts, cucumber and spring onions are tossed together while vinegar, sugar, mustard and pepper add the flavours to the vegetables. Tastes delicious when served chilled- simply serve this garnished with peanuts, or try pomegranate seeds too. Simply crunch and munch your way to good health!

I loovee bean sprouts.. The tangy dressing just was a additional flavour enhancer in the salad .. Cucumber being healthy also is a good ingredient in the salad.. Will make it more often..
