This is a simple salad that I make often at home for it is tasty as a chaat and good as a salad. I have named it sprouted moong salsa because I use all ingredients that go into salsa plus the sprouted green gram to make this salad. Another best part of this salad is just with a tad bit of salt it strikes so well without any other seasoning. It is so simple to make with every ingredient usually available at home all the time yet is very refreshing and healthy.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: Nil
1. Sprouted green gram – 1 ½ cups

4. Green Chilies – 2 (you can replace with 2 pinches of pepper if serving for kids)
5. Coriander – few sprigs
6. Lemon – ½
7. Olive oil – ½ tbsp
8. Salt to taste
Step 1: Take sprouted moong in a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Finely chop onion, tomato, green chilies, coriander and add all these to the moong.
Step 3: Drizzle olive oil, sprinkle salt and squeeze half a lemon into it.
Step 4: Toss the salad well and adjust salt if required.
Step 5: Serve it fresh before it starts to water.
*Mint leaves can be used instead of coriander.
*In the absence of fresh coriander or mint, dried herbs like Italian seasoning can be used to flavour the salad.
*I make quick lunchbox versions of this salad by just tossing pomegranate or carrot or cucumber or so with moong sprouts and seasoning them conveniently.
