  1. Place the egg into a saucepan, and fill with water to cover the egg by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the egg stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the egg under cold running water in the sink. Peel and slice once cold.
  2. Place the lettuce into a salad bowl, and sprinkle evenly with the bell pepper and onion; pour the dressing over top. Pull the sprouts apart , then place on top of the salad into a nest-like shape. Season the egg slices with salt and pepper to taste, and arrange in the center of the nest with the honey-glazed almonds.

A nice change of a salad for us. This was the first time I recall purchasing sprouts. I used broccoli sprouts rather than alfalfa sprouts as that is what they had at the Farmer's Market. I mixed the salads up early in the day and covered with plastic wrap for later in the evening. Therefore, we didn't add the salad dressing until right before eating. This is a pretty salad that I would make again for us and would be a nice presentation for company.

Sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrition and so easy to grow yourself. I made some slight changes only because of preference and what I had. I used clover sprouts I grew myself and dressed my salad with a creamy vinaigrette dressing because I don't care for ranch. I couldn't find honey glazed almonds and used candied walnuts instead. Fabulous salad and healthy too! Thanks Apple Jacks!
