Chinese Sprout Salad

Chinese Sprout Salad

This salad is a great use for bean sprouts: To make your own sprouts, rinse a small handful of mung beans in a jar, cover with cheesecloth, place jar on its side, rinse beans 2 to 3 times daily and drain off all the water. The beans will sprout in a few days and triple in volume. Store in the refrigerator and use within a few days.
