Sprouting of mung can be a little bit of extra preparation for this crunchy salad. DK form Chefinyou gives a detailed description on ‘how to sprout mung beans’, a must read…

Pomegranate adds a little sweetness to the salad. Its great flavor and health benefits have made it a great candidate for those who seek natural health foods.
