Mesa Microgreens: Grown locally in Silt, Colorado and delivered from Rifle to Aspen. Microgreens are harvested at the plant growth stage between a sprout and a baby green. They have all the flavor and dense nutrition of baby greens, but are more delicate in texture like a sprout. They are the ideal finishing touch to any dish, and perfect on salads and sandwiches. Kaylin from Mesa Microgreens delivers all of our favorites to our door - sunflower, pea, kale, kholrabi, radish, broccoli and her special microgreen mix to add to smoothies!

Fibrous, slightly sweet snap peas provide an excellent crunch if you eat them raw. But pairing them with a few simple ingredients take the shoots to another level. Saute snap peas on medium heat until char spots appear (you can saute without oil, on a well-heated cast iron skillet), then plate. Toss them with lemon, chopped mint, flaky salt, and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
