Springtime Salad

Springtime Salad

Remember growing sprouts as a kid? You remember, in a jar and putting some panty hose over the top of the jar to let them breathe? Yes, it was remembering those healthy sprouts that made me want to start to grow my own again this spring. So simple. Let life do its magic and the health benefits can keep rolling on in. Here’s all it takes:

Day One

Day One

Soak your seeds in just enough Filtered water to cover them and keep under a lid.

Day 2-3

Day 2-3

Then add water and rinse two to three times a day.

Day 3-4

Day 3-4

Remember at this time you are still keeping your seeds moist and in the dark!

Day 5

Day 5

At about this time your sprouts are almost ready for some sunlight.

Day 7

Day 7

And at this stage you can put your uncovered sprouts in a sunny window for a day and watch them literally turn green, a real green. Your sprouts are now ready for some fabulous sandwiches and salads.

Here’s my favorite Salad Dressing:

1 cup olive oil

1/8 – 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

1/4 cup Dijon Mustard

Salt & Pepper to taste

2 cloves chopped garlic

1 Tablespoons Italian Herbs, or fresh if you have them.

Shake Well.

Get ready for a clean bill of health!

Bon Appétit!
