Experimenting with Sprouts: Cold Sprouted Adzuki Salad

In my first attempt to throw a dish together around my freshly sprouted adzuki beans, I went for a cold side-salad to go with dinner. The sprouts have a jicama-like taste (and look like sperm), which I'm not crazy about but don't mind at the same time. This salad has a crisp, refreshing taste. Here's what's in it:
2 cups sprouted adzuki beans
1/2 an English cucumber
2 tomatoes
juice of 1 lime
fresh parsley, chopped
fresh green onions, chopped
1 T white wine vinegar
1/2 T olive oil
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
