    3 tbs of cream cheese
    2 tbs of sour cream and 1 1/2 tbs of pesto
    blend by hand until creamy
    add favorite sandwich garnishes…such as micro celery greens and tomatoes

For a “Spring Chicken Salad Sandwich” consider a few of our favorite garnishes of micro mustard, violets, rose petals, wild crafted garlic mustard, shiso and other greens.

Pesto, essentially “paste”, is also made from our raspberry crops and is used as a different sort of pesto.  Makes great thumbprint cookies, spreads, cake layers, hot tea, etc.
