Kelp Noodle Salad

The lentil sprouts have grown! They have little happy tails and a crunchy taste. Over the last couple of days I have eaten them in tortillas with tofu spread and in salads. Here's one colorful possibility, made with slippery translucent kelp noodles.

Kelp Noodle Salad
1 package kelp noodles
4 romaine lettuce leaves
4 tbsp chopped green onions
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup lentil sprouts
juice from 1 lime
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil

Open kelp noodle package. Place noodles in a colander and rinse in warm water. Place in bowl with lettuce, green onions, cilantro and sprouts. Mix lime juice, soy sauce and sesame oil; pour over salad and toss lightly.

Sounds yum! Do you think some avocado would taste lovely in this salad as well? I was thinking of throwing avocado into a bowl with the rest of the "saucy ingredients" and mix it up and then pour over?

Oh and... I bought some kelp noodles today... but they are green, not glassy. Is that weird?
