    • Oriental dressing
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander

    Preparation:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Cut the carrot into 4 cm lengths. Slice thinly lengthways, then cut into very fine matchsticks. Cut the celery into matchsticks the same size. Core the apple and cut into 8 wedges, then thinly slice the wedges crossways to make fan-shaped pieces.
    2. Combine the carrot, celery, apple, mung bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts and sunflower kernels in a mixing bowl.
    3. To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients, seasoning with pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well to coat evenly and serve.


    For a more substantial salad to serve as a light main dish, you can replace the mung bean sprouts with sprouted green or brown lentils, and stir in 100 g diced tofu.


    Sprouted beans and seeds are a good source of vitamin C and folate, as well as phytochemicals including lutein, coumarins and xanthophylls.
