Sugar Snap Peas & Micorgreens Salad with Grapefruit Dressing

Thinly cut sugar snap peas combined with microgreens and tossed with grapefruit dressing makes this salad very light yet surprisingly filling at the same time. This is a crunchy, juicy, and refreshing salad that pairs really well with chilled white wine such as a Sauvignon blanc, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio & Pinot Gris. I buy microgreens from the Farmer’s Market but they can also be found at specialty grocery stores.  If you cannot find microgreens you can use any firm greens such as arugula, mache, or baby kale. Here is the recipe.
