Strawberry & Pea Microgreens Salad



The Pea microgreens from C&L Farms are sweet, crunchy and are a good source of fiber. Use them in the vegetarian salad below in early Spring. Look for fresh strawberries at the Cotton Mill Farmers Market in early May each year and pair them with our microgreens for a healthy salad.

Ingredients

Vinaigrette

  • 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries

  • 2 Tbs. white balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup

  • 2 tsp. lime juice

  • 3 Tbs. olive oil

Salad

  • 6 oz. microgreens and/or salad greens

  • 12 snow peas, thinly sliced

  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced

  • Halved strawberries, edible flowers, and fresh herb sprigs, for garnish, optional

Preparation

1. To make Vinaigrette: Combine strawberries, vinegar, and maple syrup in bowl. Let stand 30 minutes. Strain liquid into small bowl (keeping strawberries separate), and stir in lime juice and oil. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

2. To make Salad: Toss together microgreens, snow peas, radishes, reserved strawberries, and 1/4 cup Vinaigrette in bowl. Garnish with halved strawberries, edible flowers, and fresh herb sprigs (if using).
