Soaking raw pumpkin seeds for a few hours can create a delicious and nutrient-dense creamy salad dressing that pairs well with a fresh lettuce and vegetable salad. Use whatever varieties of fresh basil you have growing in your garden. Holy basil, lemon basil, sweet basil, and purple basil all work well!
