Easy Economical Pesto

I created this more economical version of pesto with walnuts rather than the traditional pine nuts. Walnuts are less expensive as well as the popular nut can usually be found in most kitchens while pine nuts are a less seldom used dry good. This version gives you more incentive to prepare this super healthy and delicious condiment more often.

Wild Rice and Sweet Corn Balls with Roasted Red Pepper-Walnut Dip

These nutty-sweet wild rice-sweet corn balls with a hint of heat are the perfect compliment to the smoky red pepper-walnut dip. It’s a match made-in-heaven appetizer sure to illicit oohs and ahhs at your next potluck get together. I even like this pairing as a vegan lunch or dinner; just add a side of greens or a crisp salad.

Roasted Salmon and Grapes

Serve with millet pilaf and buttered broccoli-

A recipe on Whole Food Market’s website inspired this company-worthy meal. The original recipe featured a roasted fennel and grape sauce, but I roasted sweet onions with the grapes instead and laced it with tarragon for a more kid-friendly version. Both kids and adults alike raved about the concentrated flavors of the grapes and onions which compliment the meaty salmon very well. Perfect for fall, but also works well in the summer when you want to take breaks from salads and grilling.
