Microgreens were once thought of as just a garnish for elaborate meals. Today, however, they are known to be far more than just a fancy dressing on otherwise drab dishes.

Microgreens offer unique tastes and colors that according to some world renowned chefs, can make the difference between a good meal and a great meal.

Whilst many people use microgreens only in sandwiches or salads they have the potential to be used in many other dishes.

Here are 6 easy and nutritious recipes that include microgreens.

Microgreens with Strawberry-Lime Vinaigrette
As microgreens are tender and sweet, you will not want to use a dressing that overwhelms these tiny veggies. Strawberry-lime vinaigrette is delicate enough not to smother the taste of the microgreens.

Vinaigrette: 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries.. 2 tsp. lime juice. 1 tsp. pure maple syrup. 2 Tbs. white balsamic vinegar. 3 Tbs. olive oil.

Salad: 6 oz. microgreens of your choice. 12 snow peas, thinly sliced. 2 radishes, thinly sliced.

After combining the strawberries, maple syrup and vinegar, let it stand for 30 minutes. Remove and keep strawberries and then add oil and lime juice. Toss together the ingredients along with the removed strawberries and ¼ cup of vinaigrette.
