Fruity Bean Salad

I often create new recipes with what is left in the refrigerator. Many of these creations work and my family lets me know when they don't. This is one of the recipes that got a hearty nod. It provides adequate amounts of calcium, vitamin C, iron and fibre. Sprouting the pulses increases their nutrient content and also makes them easier to digest as compared to whole unsprouted pulses.
