2 cups very hot water
½ cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1/3 cup chopped dill
4 scallions, white and green parts, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place the sprouted mung beans in a medium bowl. Pour the hot water over them to cover; let soak for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Drain and transfer to a large serving bowl.
Add the walnuts, dill, scallions, olive oil and lemon juice. Toss to combine, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature.
To toast walnuts: add the walnuts to a small dry skillet over medium-low heat until they are fragrant and have slightly darkened in color. Cool completely before using.
