We love to sprinkle this seasoning mix over all manner of salads and pasta dishes, as well as the Ricotta Crostini.

Lasts longer than 2 weeks if you keep it in the freezer. Toasting the sesame seeds is key.

Not sure why the recipe title says black olives while the ingredients list says kalamata, but the result is fantastic nonetheless. I like to sprinkle it on soup as a garnish.
