If this is your first time and it's hard to visualize how much you need for a dish...when we make a salad for two, we like to use a total of two ounces, along with some veggies and your favorite protein, this will yield a salad to satisfy two people.

**Standalone shoots without microgreens** Pea shoots are crunchy and sweet like a snap pea. Kids love them plain as a snack or with a light dressing of lemon. Chefs love using pea shoots to brighten up dishes such as a hearty meat dish but they go great on just about anything! They can be in excess of 5" so try chopping them up unless you want to look like a cow munching down the fields! **Qty: Sold by the ounce.**

These are some of the more popular microgreens, with their prolific use in healthy eating. Sunflower Shoots work great to flavor smoothies, and kids love them too! **Qty: Sold by the ounce.**
A bigtime favorite these shoots are grown in the absence of light, making them tender and incredibly sweet. It’s a taste you have to try to believe. They don’t have a very long shelf life however, so eat them quick!
