Sprouted Moong Salad

Sprouts are always healthy and even tasty when it’s done right. It contains proteins and vitamins. I love sprouts and make it atleast once in two weeks. It’s very easy to make and you can serve it as a lunch or even a snack. It can make a healthy alternative to any oily snacks.

Also if you are dieting you should definitely consider this for one of your meals. It’s a very refreshing and healthy salad.
