Celery & Green Bell Pepper With Sesame Dressing

2 cups bean sprouts
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoons mild chili powder
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 celery stalks, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 large Granny Smith green apple
2 tablespoons sesame seeds to garnish

Rinse and drain the bean sprouts. Pick them over and remove any that seem a little brown or limp- it is essential that they are fresh and crunchy for this recipe. To make the dressing, combine the cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, sugar and salt thoroughly. In a large bowl, combine the celery, bel pepper, bean sprouts, and apple. To prepare the garnish, toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet until they are just turning color. Stir the dressing into the mixed vegetables just before serving. Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds.
