A simple raw vegetable salad is a nutritious and easy side dish.
2 cups alfalfa or sunflower sprouts
¼ cup grated raw beets
¼ cup grated raw carrots
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
¼ cup olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ cup chopped green onion
1 clove minced garlic
Layer the sprouts, beets and carrots on a small plate just before serving. It’s best if veggies are cold and crisp.
Mix dressing ingredients and pour over raw veggies. Garnish salad with 2 tablespoons roasted sesame or sunflower seeds. Roast seeds in dry cast iron skillet.
