SPROUTED SPRING SALAD


so spring has finally sprung and i am certainly greatful for the gorgeous sunny days, despite the fact that all my winter clothes finally arrived from spain! but in the spirit of spring i decided a fresh, colorful, and crunchy salad was in order... with my first lentil sprout 'harvest' as the star - so good!

how?
1/4 avocado, peeled and diced
1/4 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or whole (as desired) 
small handful of snow pea sprouts
4-5 edible flowers 
1/4 cup of lentil sprouts
2-3 strips of semi dried tomatoes, sliced into strips

toss together in a serving bowl, placing the edible flowers on top as a vibrant and peppery garnish and  dig in! (you can dress your salad with your fav vinaigrette, creamy-style dressing, or with a little oil from the semi dried tomatoes... i cut out dressings to lower the fat and find the avo does a good job alone!)
