Byron Bay Sprout Salad

We spend a lot of time in Byron Bay and every Thursday there is a wonderful farmer’s market where one stall sells a most fantastic assortment of sprouts – including sprouted chickpeas, lentils, mungbeans, peas, alfalfa as well as delicious soaked almonds. So easy to buy a bag of sprouts, and make this quick and healthy lunch!
