I came across this incredibly HEALTHY salad while looking for something to use my freshly sprouted mung beans in. Nice sharp flavors together balance the earthy taste of the sprouts. I altered it slightly by using lime juice and added chopped ginger (cuz I love it). Also I didn't have cilantro but used flat leaf parsley instead, mainly for color. I think cilantro would have been better. Recommend to check for 'unspouted beans' when making this, as they are an occaisonal unpleasant crunch.
This is a very good, refreshing, light salad. I used a Hungarian wax pepper 'cause that's what I had, and added a dash of cayenne flakes to add heat. I might leave out the tomato next time. It did not seem to fit the "theme" of the salad, though it was still good with it.
You're right, Sandi, I did feel "superior" at eating something so healthy and fresh for dinner! This is true "Your body is a temple" food.
