Beet, chard, cress, mustard, arugula, and nasturtium microgreens give a simple salad distinctive taste.

Serves 4

Top a bedding of mild lettuce with a handful of assorted microgreens and dress all with a simple vinaigrette. The brilliant colors, distinctive textures, and varied flavors of microgreens make other ingredients unnecessary.

1 large or 2 small heads butterhead lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup mild-flavored microgreens such as beets and/or chard
1/4 cup pungent microgreens such as cress, mustard, arugula, and/or nasturtium
1/4 cup broccoli microgreens or sprouts
1 1/2 tablespoons seasoned rice wine vinegar, preferably herb-infused Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Place the lettuce in a salad bowl and toss with the oil. In a separate bowl, toss the microgreens with the vinegar. Drain the vinegar over the lettuce and toss it again before arranging the sprouts on top. Add salt and pepper to taste.
