I started growing my own micro greens for my food blog and I love having these flavor and nutrient packed little gems of greenery on hand. But they grow really fast and if you don't harvest them properly you end up with a full size plant. Suddenly I with awash in a mini jungle and eating salads as fast as I could when realized I could use them in my cocktails as well.
My pea shoots were threatening to turn from adorable toddlers into gangly teenagers overnight so they were the first I harvested for happy hour. I also grabbed some fresh mint because peas and mint are a classic culinary combination, and a cucumber because it was sitting in the counter looking refreshing. The name was just a happy coincidence ....
