This is a quick, easy and very healthy sunflower sprout and tomato salad with a red wine vinaigrette straight from the farmer’s market. Go find the sprout guy or girl at your farmer’s market and ask for sunflower sprouts, they are definitely a hidden gem. These things are so fresh and healthy tasting, you could even eat them as a snack in a movie instead of popcorn. The acidity and pepperiness of the red wine vinaigrette combined with the shallots and tomatoes are a great and balanced combination.
