Over the weekend, I bought a little bag of clover sprouts at the farmers market, and I’ve been throwing them on everything ever since. My daughter likes to eat them right out of the bag. She’s way ahead of me; I’m pretty sure I didn’t eat sprouts until well into adulthood. Let’s just say that Bellevue, Nebraska in the 1980s wasn’t the type of place where sprouts showed up on sandwiches or in salads. There were no microgreens. Now I can buy sprouts year round at the farmers market from the amazing sprout lady who regularly grows five or six different varieties ranging from mild (clover) to zesty (cilantro) to downright fiery hot (radish). And I do love sprouts on a tuna salad sandwich. So do the kiddos. How could anyone resist this deliciousness:
