Broccoli Mushroom Salad

I love the combination of flavours in this salad; broccoli, bean sprouts and mushrooms. Add to this the toasted crunch of chow mein noodles and hemp seeds. Tossed with a delicious asian dressing and you have a perfect salad to serve with grilled steak or all on its own for a lunch dish. Next time you are asked to bring the salad for a get together, try this one.

    1. I buy Hemp seed at this Whole Foods market (Amaranth Foods) I love in St. Albert, Alberta, but if I'm not mistaken I think Costco sells them.
