Hey there! If you fail to follow my previous posting of a successful bean sprouting, not to worry, you can buy bean sprouts from the Chinese supermarkets. This is so easy, as you just layer up the ingredients in a huge mason jar. You can experiment too but always put the bean sprouts at the bottom so they won’t dry out when you store it in the refrigerator, better to layer them the night before you get to work in the morning but the salad dressing will blow you away, as this amount is just enough for your portable salad and I really wanted a burst of red color and zing to our dressing, hate to use food coloring too!
1 and 1/2 cups of bean sprout
1/2 red plum tomatoes (cubed)
1/4 cucumber (cubed)
1/4 can young corn (rinsed/drained)
1-2 red radish (cubed)
1. Layer the cubed ingredients inside a cleaned and dried mason jar. Put the lid back and put inside the refrigerator. Serve with the dressing, recipe to follow.
BEETS FLAVORED SALAD DRESSING:
Mix 2 teaspoons each of olive oil, lime juice and apple cider vinegar in a cute little jar like in the picture, cover and shake vigorously then add 1 teaspoon each of balsamic vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce and shake again. Add 1 teaspoon coconut sugar, 2 pinches of cayenne pepper and garlic powder then add a slice of fresh, uncooked beets (minced finely) and a small clove of finely minced garlic. Shake vigorously mixing the red beets color and all the flavors in that cute, tiny jar. Taste if you like the flavors, and adjust the ingredients according to your tastebuds.
As always, continue to create good things out of the ordinary stuffs that are just easily available for our creative minds. Masarap! (Delicious)
