...tossed in a lemon dressing & topped with Simple Basil Pesto
Black quinoa awakens to it’s full potential when it is soaked and sprouted. Lots of colorful raw veggies and fresh green herbs are tossed in and a bright green basil pesto crowns the top. The pesto is a true complement to this dish as it increases nutrition, adds a great fresh flavor and a bright look!

Black Sesame Pesto
A dipping sauce for fresh veggies or a dressing for grain salads!
Fresh vegetables from our local farmer’s market are cut into chip size pieces just right for dipping into this most delicious and unique pesto. Add a little water to Black Sesame Pesto and it turns into a dressing suitable for grain salads and kale salad.
