I've always hated American Italian food. Never fresh, always over cooked, and pasta pasta pasta. But the fresh ingredients associated with Italian food is an endless source of yummy inspiration for raw cuisine.
Think of an ultimate supreme pizza and use what you have on hand
My favorite combination is:
Sun dried Tomatoes
Pesto and Garlic Lemon Vinaigrette
1 Tablespoon Pesto
1 Garlic Clove
Chop, dice, toss, as you wish all these ingredients together to make a salad. For the dressing mix together 1 tablespoon of pesto (A pesto recipe is posted in June for the Zucchini Pasta and Pesto) add 1 clove of minced garlic and the juice of 1 lemon. Pour on salad and enjoy. This is better than pizza..yum.
