This Roasted Broccoli Salad is always a hit! When I serve it my friends they think they’re dining in a Michelin star restaurant! This salad is sweet and savory. The smokey corn is complimented by the roasted broccoli and a sweet thick balsamic vinaigrette. Best of all is that this salad is vegan, gluten free and detoxifying!

Health Benefits of Microgreens

Microgreens are little dynamites filled with nutrition. They often have up to 40 times more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than the mature leaves. Microgreens are the young sprouts of other plants. They are usually derived from different types of vegetables including broccoli, cabbage, romaine, sunflowers, cabbage etc.

Microgreens are delicate in flavor and beautiful to look at. You can use micro greens as a garnish to make your dishes look professional and add extra nutrition at the same time!
