Low Carb Crunchy Peanut Sauced Salad

Crunchy Peanut Sauced SaladThis is my version of a crunchy peanut sauced salad that was originally served over rice.  I ditched the rice and beets and subbed mung bean sprouts and jicama and I think you will find it quite tasty and with some major crunchy effects.  Put that lime in the coconut and enjoy in good health.
