SPROUTED MOONG SALAD

SPROUTED MOONG SALAD

My husband and I love salads and it's a good thing we do. At our age, indeed at all ages, we need to keep an eye on our cholesterol levels, don't we?

Salads are a wonderful, quick to fix means of tucking into some real healthy food. Jennifer Moll, About.com Guide shares her tips to keep your salads "cholesterol friendly."

Today, I would like to share an healthy easy to make salad made of Moong ( Green Gram). This is a popular salad in many Indian households. I am sure you will agree with me that apart from its nutritional value and taste, the Sprouted Moong Salad is a treat to the eyes too.
