Summer salad of sprouted mung beans with avocado, mango, arugula and roasted macadamia nuts

The salad is suitable for consumption in these hot summer months. The cold nature of the mung and the bitter taste of the arugula will refresh our bodies, and macadamia nuts and avocados will provide quality fats. Enjoy your meal.


125g mung beans
1 larger avocado (or 2 smaller)
1 mango
arugula (or dandelion leaves)
80 g of macadamia nuts
olive oil


We first soak the mung beans in a bowl for 10-12 hours, then rinse them and let them germinate (germination time 1-3 days; here it is necessary to rinse and change the water at least twice a day).
Rinse the sprouted mungo again, pour it into a bowl and add finely chopped avocado and mango, a few arugula leaves, add a little salt.
Finely chop the macadamia nuts (but we can also leave them whole), fry them slightly dry and sprinkle them on the salad.
Thanks to nuts and avocado, the salad is rich in quality fats; add a little olive oil for possible flavouring.
We can use daisies or dandelion flowers for decoration.
