HUGE Salad of the Day, Sprouts Are Done, and Marinated Sprout Salad

 I ended up doing a HUGE salad last night for dinner!  I do LOVE creative salads!  The first picture above you can see it's stand alone - all mixed up - and the second one I took before 'tossing' so you can see the ingredients better (other than the lettuce, that is).  What did I use in this salad?
 Well, let me tell  you!
I used Petite Oak, Gem, and Tango Lettuces, Zima Tomatoes, Sweet Mini Red and Yellow Peppers, Vegan Won Ton Strips, and Organic Vegan Ranch Dressing.

Had I had some handy - I would of probably added some Almonds and I forgot to put Hemp Seeds on it!

This totally hit the spot!  I LOVED this salad in more ways than I can express!

 In other news...
My Lentil Sprouts are finished sprouting!  YAY!  I think they turned out FAB this time around.  I saved some to used on a veggie burger in the very near future.  But I also made a Marinated Sprouted Salad.  In the photo above you can see it naked.

This Salad contains...
Sprouted Lentils
Zima Tomatoes
1/4 of an Avocado
Sweet Mini Red Bell Peppers

It was pretty good and marinated as-is...but...I LOVE Balsamic...so...

Wildtree Balsamic added here!  This was a roller-coaster of Flavor and Nutrition!

I was proud with my attempt!

Next up for sprouting?
The Power House Blend!  More on that coming soon!

  2. I love sprouts. I recently got into them because my roommate always has tons of them in the apartment. I love putting them in salads and on sandwiches.

  4. I never thought of sprouting lentils! That looks scrumptious with the basalmic, avocados, peppers and tomatoes. Have you sprouted mung beans before?

    1. I have :)

      It's been a while since I have sprouted Mung Beans and might have to do that soon! Thanks for the reminder :)

      I think the one I goofed once was Adzuki Beans - I will have to try them again, too!

  6. I need to get a proper sprouting jar. I love sprouts and even have some seeds but it's a pain in the butt to drain and rinse them in a shaker cup.

    1. I just use a small or larger wide mouth mason jar - those fit the sprouting caps I use.
