It was our monthly "Member Day" at our local food co-op yesterday, so I received a 10% discount off my total purchases instead of our normal 5%. By the time I arrived back home and had put all of my groceries away, Dick and I were getting hungry... too famished for any long involved prep or extended cooking time. I stuck my head in the fridge and grabbed items to make a salad... mesclun, cauliflower, cucumbers, zucchini, red grapes, apples, raw sunflower seeds, and Swiss cheese, then drizzled Newman's Raspberry Walnut Dressing over top. For a sandwich, I spread basil mayo on a slice of sprouted grain bread then added slices of thinly sliced turkey and a mound of sprouts. A little dish of maple flavored yogurt and we had "fast food". Basil mayo is so good to have on hand in your fridge to add flavor and a little pickle crunch to a sandwich. Here's the recipe:
1 cup Grape Seed Vegenaise. It has a yummy flavor. You can buy it at a food co-op or health food store. Regular mayo doesn't get it.)
2 tbsp dried basil.
3 tbsp chopped dill pickle plus 1 tbsp brine from jar
2 green onions, finely chopped
