Balsamic-Dressed Alfalfa Sprout Salad || Healthy Vegan Recipes

You can make all kinds of substitutions to the basics I listed here – swap sprouts for lettuce or kale, swap the veggies for others, swap the seeds for beans, add a chopped apple, change the flavors in the dressing…

Really, what I wanted to show you here is how easy it can be to throw together an easy and healthy lunch.



1 cup alfalfa or red clover sprouts
1 small green onion, chopped
1/4 cup broccoli, chopped
1/4 cup cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raisins
1 Tbsp nori strips (optional)
2 tbsp balsamic dressing (recipe below)

Dressing Ingredients

2 Tbsp tahini (or another nut/seed butter)
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp water (more or less)
1/2 clove garlic (or 1 very small clove), pressed
1 Tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped (or 2 tsp dried)
