A crunchy Salad with bread is my idea of quick ,healthy and light lunch.
Ingredients Needed are
1 cup Mung Bean Sprouts(see how to grow sprouts)
8-10 Snap Peas
1/4 cup Carrots grated
4-6 cherry tomatoes cut in halves
2 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 tablespoon chopped basil or cilantro
2 tablespoon Olive oil
Salt and Pepper as per taste.
To make the Salad
Using a Colander rinse the sprouts in cold water and drain all water.
Bring 2 cups of water to boil and drop the snap peas and cook for about 3 minutes until tender. drain all water and set aside.
Prepare the dressing by whisking together oil ,lemon juice,chopped basil, salt and pepper.
Transfer all the veggies and sprouts in a big salad bowl and toss them with the dressing. Serve with bread or stuff in sandwiches.
