What is pesto other than an oil based sauce blended with aromatics, cheese and nuts? It’s such a versatile spread, serve these three with your choice of meat, pasta or veg. Add some extra oil and vinegar, and it would become a salad dressing.
It keeps well too, store in an airtight container. Leave a little room between the pesto and the lid and cover with Extra Virgin Olive Oil to seal and chill in the fridge for up to one month.
- In a food processor, pulse the nuts until finely chopped.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until fully incorporated.
- Taste and adjust seasoning.
