Mango-Sprout Salad

I love putting mangoes in salads. They make salads juicy, pulpy and interesting!! This salad is one of my favourites, I often prepare it and it is always a hit!! It is vegan, oil-free and gluten-free, so a good option for weight watchers. Eating sprouts is very beneficial for loosing weight. Sprouts can be a good source of proteins without calories. they are also rich in vitamin C and minerals. But it is important to blanch them before consuming, to kill bacteria that develop during the sprouting process. Sprouting is very easy to do at home. I will soon write a post on it!Mango-sprout combination goes so well  So try this fresh delicious salad and cook the natural way!! Hope you like it!!
