  • Summary

    Micro greens are typically one-inch to two-inches in height. Although little in size, they pack an intense flavor but not as strong as mature greens and herbs. In restaurants you’ll notice them as a garnish on food. Are micro greens the same as sprouts? Nope, they are grown in soil whereas sprouts are produced entirely in water.

    Ingredients

    • 2 generous handfuls of micro greens
    • 2 to 3 asparagus spears, shaved (use a mandoline or vegetable peeler)
    • handful of grape tomatoes, quartered
    • ½ an avocado, sliced
    • 4 to 6 strawberries, quartered
    • 1 small clove of garlic, minced
    • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • extra-virgin olive oil
    • white balsamic vinegar
