Earthy broccoli florets, iceberg lettuce and crispy celery stalks in combination with bean sprouts provide a wonderful array of flavours to delight the palate and also provide a wealth of nutrients.
The puréed melon adds volume to the dressing making it creamier and of a coating consistency to flavour the vegetables and sprouts. Feel free to use any combination of vegetables that are handy.
