Sweet Dijon Raw Sprouted Salad

RawSproutedPeaGreenSalad

This delightful little salad makes for a delicious light lunch, or accompaniment to any meal.  Sprouted greens are nutrient-dense, loaded with minerals and enzymes to nourish your body and aid in digestion.  I used sprouted pea greens in this recipe, but sunflower sprouts would also work well, or any sprouted greens you prefer.  The dijon dressing is sweet and tangy, reminiscent of honey dijon but without the sugar – perfect for anyone on a low-sugar diet or concerned about their carb intake!

Salt (to taste)
