MicroGreens are nutrient and flavor packed mini versions of full grown vegetables. They are the shoots from salad vegetables and are way more healthy than their adult forms. The "Spicy Salad Mix" consists of cabbage, broccoli and arugula shoots.

Carolina Layered Salad

  • Carolina Layered Salad
  • Nothing more southern than this salad. I crave it. Easy and, unlike other salads, keeps in the fridge for a while so you can eat it over and over. Just don't eat the whole bowl like I do.
