Friends Sprout Salad

Friends Sprout Salad

Hello Sprouts,

This summer I made many versions of sprout salad.  This is the one that I make most often.

I have gone a bit deeper into the materials/ingredients I use so you know what to shop for if you decide to make this salad yourself.  I purchased all the ingredients at Organic Garage with the exception of my cucumber, Dijon mustard, and olive oil.

I served this salad up to friends and they all loved it so in honour of my friends who supported me this summer, here it is for you to make.
