This is delicious! I used fresh basil from my garden, roasted salted cashews (which means I needed less salt at the end) and a little squeeze of lemon. My pesto was quite thick because I ran out of olive oil, but it's delicious. The taste of the cashews really comes out, and of course they are much more affordable than pine nuts. I can't wait to try it with pasta or fish. Made for ZWT 7 - Shady Ladies.

Love this pesto, I have made it twice, first time didn't use as much oil, second time followed oil amount in recipe. Think I prefer it with slightly less oil. I've used it as a pasta sauce, in dips, and on toast. This is now a family favourite and I like that it doesn't use pine nuts. Thanks for sharing.

This is Delish! Made it for the top of a soup for the cafe I work in. My boss said it was the best pesto she's ever tasted. Definitely a winner! will make again.
