Bean Sprout Salad

Bean sprouts, commonly used in Chinese and Japanese cuisines, are highly nutritious. The longer the sprout the more the nutrition. The sprouts used in this salad are made from green moong and sprouted for over three days. It is best to use the sprouts raw, without steaming or boiling. This way you retain the crunchiness as well as the vitamins. You may want to add sliced onion to the recipe, if you like. It also goes well as a side dish instead of a salad.
