Packed with the goodness of bean sprouts and vegetables, Beetroot and Sprouts Salad is one thing I swear by every time I go on a diet and crave for something spicy and refreshing. This salad has a lot of crunch – of sprouts, of raw, grated vegetables and of apple, which I toss in for some added taste. Plus, there is cottage cheese, which only increases the nutritional value of this Salad. Very simple to make and very tasty to eat, this Salad will leave you wanting more every time you eat it. Here’s how you can make it:
