That’s a pretty crunchy lunch. That’s all lightness but that was very filling. I don’t think these pink flowers are edible. They decorate South-Asian dish. Their presence gives a paradise dream touch to any dish. I picked a box on sale, and I’ve build my jungle around them.
Starting with a bunch of fresh basil.
Let’s pound a pesto in the mortar : basil, sesame, garlic, salt. Plus : olive oil, lemon juice.
Rosy spring cauliflower.
Other raw veggies : new onion, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, favas (broad beans).
The raw vegetables marinated one hour in the pesto.
Place the veggies on a bed of baby leaf salad and more basil leaves.
