Spring Microgreen Salad

This salad packs big flavor in tiny greens. The variety of greens combined with carrots and peas create a great blend of textures, and the tasty vinaigrette will keep you coming back for more!

  • 1 package baby greens or spring mix
  • 1 package pea sprouts (Trader Joe’s)
  • 3/4 cup baby carrots sliced
