Five B Salad

(AKA "Not Chuck-A-Rama's Broccoli Salad!")
I love how bright and creative this salad is! Take this to your next potluck...
2 cups bean sprouts (alfalfa, broccoli, onion or any combo of sprouts)
1 sweet red bell pepper, seeded, deveined and sliced into ribbons
3 cups broccoli florets blanched and well drained (I left them raw)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup cooked, diced purple beets, well drained (I roasted them for about 35 minutes)
1 purple onion, peeled and sliced into thin rings
1 cup grape tomatoes
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup oil (olive, avocado, flax, pumpkin or a combo of these--I used half grapeseed and half flaxseed oil)
2 TBSP rice vinegar
3 cloves garlic
6 TBSP tamari (I used Bragg's. Tamari is basically soy sauce.)

Combine all ingredients in a delightful salad bowl because this is a pretty salad! Cover and refrigerate or serve right away. In a small mixing bowl (or shaker bottle is what I love to use), whisk all dressing ingredients until well blended. Serve dressing on the side. *Dressing is a bit salty, don't know what to do about that. We really loved this salad!
