Story Behind this Recipe
Bean sprouts are cheap and delicious, and I wanted to eat a lot of them, so I made them into my favorite Chinese style salad. My whole family loved it!
I recommend you heat the bean sprouts in water until it starts to boil. That way, they retain their delicious crunchiness! The ☆ ingredients combine to make a great dressing, so if you have leftovers, try it on chikuwa fish sticks, crab sticks, glass noodles, seaweed, etc.
