Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 red-skinned dessert apple
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 3/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
  • Oriental dressing
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Directions
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.

Variation

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.

HEALTH HINT

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