Micro greens, what are they good for?

As a member of a CSA there is a time of year when I receive micro greens several times a month. Beautiful little greens, crisp stemmed, fresh leaved and young.

My problem is I have no idea what to do with them. I get that they can be mixed into a salad but I feel like it's easy for them to lose their individuality and texture. While I've seen them used as a garnish I would like to be able to use more than a handful at a time. Does anyone out there use these regularly?
