Bean sprout and cucumber salad


4 or 5 cups bean sprouts
2 or 3 Lebanese cucumbers, cut in ribbons with a vegetable pealer (do not use the seeds)
1 red bell pepper or a few red chili peppers, thinly sliced
1 bunch of cilantro leaves
1 bunch of mint leaves, whole or roughly torn
1 big handful of roasted cashews, roughly chopped
the juice of one lime
a big splash of soya sauce
a couple of drops of toasted sesame oil
a splash of vegetable oil


1. Make sure that all your vegetables are clean and dry. Put them all in a big bowl along with the cashews.
2. Add the lime juice, then the soya sauce, the sesame oil and finish with a bit of vegetable oil. Taste as you go along and adjust the quantities to make it delicious.
