Green Sparkle Salad

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘Cool Foods for A Hot Summer‘.

This salad is so light and tasty that you may find yourself craving an encore! Sprouts are very cooling and when paired with seafood, this makes a lovely cooling meal when summer is at its peak.

The sprouted mung beans are rich in protein and add a good crunch. The arugula gives a nice bitter note and is a wonderful detoxifying vegetable. The snap peas are rich in b-vitamins and add a lovely sweetness to the salad. (Makes 4 salads.)

Ingredients

  • 6 cups bean sprouts (sprouted mung beans)
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 2 cups snap peas, chopped
  • Optional protein boost: top with seafood of choice!
  • Dressing:
  • 3 Tbsp hummus
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp basil, dried or pesto

1) Combine salad ingredients in large bowl and top with dressing.
