Microgreens Mixes

Updated: Mar 13


Here are several of mixes of microgreens we have had success with. Most of the varieties we call for can be substituted with whatever you are growing. The ratios given create a balanced mix, pairing flavor with appearance. All of these mixes can be used as the base of any favorite salad.

Asian Mix

All of these varieties (besides radish, which becomes tough) are beautiful when grown to their true leaf stage, making this a great microgreens salad mix.

3 1/2 ounces Tokyo Bekana

2 1/2 ounces Pac Choi

1 1/2 ounces Radish (Hong Vit or China Rose)

1/2 ounce Amaranth

Toss all ingredients together and garnish dishes according to your desire.

Micro Mix

This mix is composed of very young microgreens, harvested at their cotyledon stage. We find that it is better to use a garnish than as a micro salad.

4 ounces Red Cabbage

2 ounces Arugula or Broccoli

1 1/2 ounces Endive

1/2 ounce Amaranth

Toss all ingredients together and garnish dishes according to your desire.

Spicy Mix

This mix packs some heat. The vibrant colors of the radish and mustard paired with green arugula and delicate cress make it both beautiful and delicious. Take note that if you are cutting these microgreens for storage you will want to leave out the cress as it tends to have a shorter shelf life than the other ingredients.

3 ounces Radish (Hong Vit or China Rose)

2 ounces Mustard

2 ounces Arugula

1 ounce Cress

Toss all ingredients together and garnish dishes according to your desire.

Spring Pea Mix

The sweetness of pea shoots, paired with bitter endive and spicy radish, blend nicely for a varied hardy take on a microgreens salad. Pea shoots make a great base because of their substantial size and mild flavor.

4 ounces Pea Shoots

2 ounces Endive

2 ounces Radish (Hong Vit or China Rose)

Toss all ingredients together and garnish dishes according to your desire.
