Apple and Sprout Salad

This colourful salad has a Chinese-style zesty dressing of ginger and coriander, which complements the crunchy fresh sprouts and vegetables. Any combination of sprouted beans and seeds can be used.

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 apple
  • 1 celery stick
  • 100 g (3½ oz) mung bean sprouts
  • 50 g (1¾ oz) sprouted sunflower seeds
  • 45 g (1½ oz) sprouted alfalfa seeds
For the dressing:
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • ½ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • ½ tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp grated fresh root ginger
  • salt and pepper

Preparation

Slice the carrot and celery into thin strips about 4cm long. Core the apple and slice into thin wedges. Combine the carrot, celery, apple, sprouted beans and seeds into a bowl.

To make the dressing: whisk all of the ingredients together, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss well to coat the ingredients.
