Here is are few photos showing how I like to build my sprouted mung bean salad:

1: Start with a few handfuls of sprouted mung beans in a mixing bowl and then add your favorite veggies. I like to add carrots, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, and corn as my base as these are readily available year-round!

2: Add your favorite garnish and spices. I love cilantro, salt, and red chili powder. If you do not like cilantro you can add parsley, basil, or mint and you can spice it up with black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, or jalapeños just to name a few!
