For this recipe you will need a secret ingredient that gives this special texture contrast: a bag of mung bean sprouts. I Absolutely love this product, that's very easy to serve, has a great taste and is a real nutritional bomb... I love to add it to my sweet or savoury salads, it's a real healthy fast food! You open a box and your meal is half-ready!
Crunchy and fresh mung bean sprouts pared with soft and delicate fruit create a very nice mouth feeling and a real texture surprise. I choose mangoes and pears for this salad but you can try some other fruit like papaya and bananas, oranges and mangoes, apples and bananas, etc...
Festive fruit saladTips: Sweetness and fragrance of fruit is a real key to achieve an excellence in this recipe!

- 2 large pears (or 4 small)
- 1 handful of dried cranberries
- 3 stalks of celery
- 1/2 box of mung bean sprouts

Cut mangoes and pears into pieces. Cut celery stalks into small pieces. Squeeze the juice from a half of an orange. Put all ingredients into a salad bowl and mix well. Less marinate for a few minutes (you can make it in advance) and serve.
