Deliciously healthy salad

I was passing by Dadar market in Mumbai yesterday and spotted vegetable vendors with heaps of green leafies piled on their stands. Promptly stopped the car that was rushing me to the airport to try for an earlier flight back and raced across. Then I realised the rest of the green leafies I had in stock at home, but I saw a bunch of alfalfa sprouts with one seller. I have had alfalfa salad at restaurants and catered meals but never made anything at home with them so I asked the seller for a whacking big bunch and raced back to the car feeling suitable pleased with myself. It's another matter that we reached the airport too late for the earlier flight in the bargain.

Because today I had the simplest and most delicious of salads for lunch...totally worth the late return!

1 ripe orange, cut into segments
1 handful alfalfa sprouts
Salt to taste
Spritz of lemon juice

Just mix it all together and inhale. Photos? Are you kidding - read the previous sentence!
