Sprouted Bean Salad

This Sprouted Bean Salad is a hearty and delicious dish.  This salad is perfect served as a side dish, but is hearty enough it could stand alone as a meal.

There are SO many salad recipes out there to try and I’m there for it!  Salads are a delicious side dish to pretty much any supper dish at any time of year.  And sometimes it’s nice to try new recipes, because there is so much more to salads than just simple green ones…but those are delicious too!  Today I’m sharing a delicious salad with sprouted beans and lentils as the base.

The great thing about cooked sprouted beans and lentils is how versatile they are.  They’re delicious on their own as a side dish with butter, they’re great in soups and stews, added to tacos, and they’re also really delicious tossed in salad dressing with all kinds of fresh chopped vegetables like this Sprouted Bean Salad.  This salad is loaded with healthy fresh vegetables and cooked sprouted beans, so it’s a great side dish, but it’s also hearty enough you could enjoy it as a light stand alone meal…perfect for lunch!– –
