All About Balance
When it comes to a pasta salad, balance has to be in our vocabulary. We balance the delicious taste of pasta with a heaping serving of greens, fibre, and vegetables, starting with fresh zucchini, crisp yellow peppers, and juicy grape tomatoes. Our greenhouse lettuce and arugula provide enough fibre to power you through your day. Our house-pickled red onions and kalamata olives leave you with a tang that balances all of the flavours. Our pesto seed mix, which is made with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp hearts add a tasty crunch. Did we mention this salad has orzo pasta noodles? Well, it does. And it's awesome! The result is a bold, bright, and fresh salad to kick off the feeling of summer!
Homemade Pesto Dressing
This fresh and punchy vinaigrette recipe is the star of the show. It's a mix of fresh basil leaves, arugula, lemon juice, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp hearts. The result is a basil and arugula pesto recipe that is unparalleled. It's got a staple pesto texture, a unique and flavourful profile, and it turns this orzo pasta salad into a 10 out of 10. It's a true basil pesto recipe that cannot be turned away!
Our First Single Serve Pasta Salad
We've passed a milestone! As we experiment with more bowl-style recipes that feature grains for a heartier meal, we have been doing vigorous testing with pasta. When our trial team tasted this recipe, they couldn't talk about launching it fast enough. It's our first pasta salad, and it's a winner! If you've been around for a while, you know that we are all about balance. We aren't about being the healthiest; we are about making healthy eating more attainable, affordable, and fun. What could be more fun than a perfectly balanced meal filled with fresh ingredients, loads of fibre, and PASTA!?
