Blender Pesto

Basil Pesto so easy a kid can do it! And he did! 🌿 Pesto is one of those condiments that is wonderful all year long. It is an amazing way to use up the end of summer basil when it is plentiful. In the summer I will use it to drizzle over salads, make a pasta salad dressing or top grilled fish. But I also crave that freshness in the winter too. During that time I tend to toss it with gnocchi or top a grilled steak with it. It also makes a great dipping sauce for homemade steak fries.

Super green and super delicious.

All of the ingredients ready for the blender.

Drizzled over some home made pizza with sausage and mushrooms.

Scrape the sides and give it one more pulse to combine.
