|Napa Cabbage and Arugula Salad with Microgreens and Berries|
This salad is loaded with all the good nutrients that come from our favorite cruciferous vegetables, and no empty calories. Napa cabbage replaces lettuce as the foundation, and then it is piled high with broccoli microgreens, baby arugula, raspberries, blackberries and sunflower seeds It doesn't really constitute a recipe, just use as much as you want of each ingredient.
I am a blue cheese fanatic, so I went with a little dollop of creamy dressing, but you might choose a healthier vinaigrette or just a drizzle of olive oil with some lemon.
The microgreens and baby arugula may not be easy to find in the grocery store. If you do get lucky and find them be prepared to pay dearly. If you skip buying the greens and invest in some sprouting seeds instead, you will save yourself a boatload of money. Micro and baby greens can be grown indoors all year long, so you can always have a fresh supply of whatever you want.. You get all the benefits of fresh, healthy greens with none of the cost.
