Are you ready for a recipe that is incredible easy to make? This recipe for Open Faced Egg Salad Sandwiches with Mustard Micro-greens couldn’t be easier and it gives you an excused to buy some of the cute micro-greens that you picked up at your local grocery store or Whole Foods which has quite the selection of micro-greens and the most delicious pea shoots!
Ever since I first saw fresh micro greens at one of the restaurants we visited in Virginia a few years ago, I’ve been intrigued about incorporating them into some of the dishes we make. About a month or so ago we added pea shoots to our remaining batch of gnocchi that we had made and stored in our freezer and they were so delicious when we blanched them and added them to our sauce. Then a few weeks ago I enjoyed them in a salmon salad sandwich. Yum and so nice and crunchy!
So this week I finally decided how I wanted to use our mustard micro-greens that we’d picked up from Whole Foods. They had quite a few to choose from so let me start off by sharing about a few of them and you can decide which one suits your preferred flavor profile.
