Sprout Salad

Sprout Salad

This is a fun salad or yummy sandwich filling for pita pockets! Only one word of caution: make it just before serving and don't make enough for leftovers. The sprouts wilt quickly and it won't keep a second day. Oh, and one other word of caution–this salad is so yummy, I'm sure you won't have trouble eating it all! As a child, I did not like sprouts, but I LOVED sprout salad and would beg my mother to make it during the summer picnic season! If you are worried about leftovers, make a little sprout salad in each person's serving bowl! Have fun and enjoy!
