Sprouted Niçoise Salad

Anything goes with this salad. You can use just about any veggies you have, a medium-boiled egg or two (we happen to think a six-and-a-half minute egg—lowered carefully into boiling water, cooked and then shocked in an ice bath to finish—ensures a perfectly set white and jammy yolk) a can of tuna and, of course, some crusty bread on the side. Radish stars here as a delicate, mild sprout—but whole ones would be great, too. Get the recipe: Sprouted Niçoise Salad
