Tips for Making Zucchini Tarts

The microgreens really complete the tarts, because they give a great peppery kick. If you can’t find them, thinly sliced radishes would work perfectly as well. 

You can certainly make your own, but I think store-bought, all-butter pastry is just as good – I recommend the Dufour brand. Here’s a great article on using store-bought, frozen puff pastry from the Kitchn.
