Spring in a Bowl


As the New Year rolled in we made a resolution !  We decided to eat more raw and more healthy, promising ourselves to always have some type of sprouts ready at hand.

Moon bean sprouts have now become a staple for us , but, the alfalfa sprouts was a newcomer, but when combined with the crunchy cucumber and sweet strawberry it was instantly welcomed warmly by everyone in the bowl!!! ( and of course at home !)

This salad is so refreshing to eat and pleasing to the eye that it looks like Spring in a bowl !

This is our entry for
