Single Serve Micro Green Salad

Spring is here and I am always craving cooling foods when the warmer weather hits. It’s also the time of year where we are ramping up our garden. Sadly, the weather has been a little bit unpredictable and we even had frost a few weeks ago! Luckily, this week is high double digits and all sunshine. Fingers crossed that we have seen the last of the cold weather.


My husband recently started growing some micro greens at home. We got a couple of grow lights and have experimented with many different kinds of micro greens. The typical ones include sunflower, radish and pea shoots. We have also tried broccoli, kale, lettuce and Asian greens like gai lan and pak choy. The most interesting was wasabi arugala which tasted intensely of wasabi.


With all these different micro greens, I have been building salads everyday with an assortment of different vegetables. I have a guideline below but feel free to change it up and add or take away anything that you don’t like. None of my salads are the same and I love adding all sort of different toppings and dressings to change things up.

Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 romaine lettuce leaf, sliced thin
  • 1/2 bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 mini cucumber, sliced thin
  • 1 stalk asparagus, shaved thin
  • 1 tomato, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup radish micro greens
  • 1/4 cup lettuce micro greens

Dressing

  • 2 tbsps red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic, grated
  • pinch sesame seeds
  • pinch dried onion flakes
  • pinch chili flakes
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

Building your salad

Layer all the different salad ingredients onto your plate one after another. Having a salad that is visually appealing will make it all taste better in the end. We eat with our eyes after all. I went with romaine lettuce on the bottom, topped with bell pepper, cucumbers, shaved asparagus, sliced tomatoes, lettuce micro greens and radish micro greens.

Dressing

Mix all dressing ingredients together in a bowl and stir well with a spoon. I like my dressings super vinegary but if you do not, then dial back on the vinegar. Drizzle over your salad and enjoy.

Tips

  • You can also try adding cheese, nuts or fruits as toppings. All will be delicious!
