Addictive and extremely healthy! Sometimes you can find sprouted lentils or bean medley in the higher-end markets, but you can sprout your own! TO SPROUT LENTILS: Measure about 6 to 8 tablespoons and soak them in plenty of water to cover overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse, and put them into a wide mouth jar covered with cheesecloth and secured with a rubber band. Lay the jar on its side and cover with a towel. Set aside on the kitchen counter to sprout for the day, rinsing them once or twice and draining them thoroughly. If the weather is cold, they may take a little longer to sprout. Rinse them and leave them until the next morning when you'll notice each lentil has sprouted a little tail. They will now be ready to enjoy. Time estimate does not include sprouting time.

Printed in our local newspaper. It is imperative to use the *freshest* ingredients available. Personally I would prepare this salad only in summer when the vegetables are best quality. Note: the green onions I buy at the local farmers' market are organic thus "mutant" size (which means in this salad I would only use about half the amount.) So, you may have to adjust the amount of green onions used in this recipe. There's beauty in simplicity. Note: I've also added radishes, thinly sliced raw crook neck squash and various colors of bell peppers to the salad, as a suggestion. (Recipes courtesy of Food.com - Chef Cookgirl)
