Received this in an email from www.whfoods.org (a good site for sound nutrition advice). I like this recipe because it is fresh, fast & adaptable to what the garden is currently offering. The site offered this as well - "If you want to enhance the flavor of chicken or fish as well as add extra vitamins K, A and C to your meal, try this pesto that can be prepared in a matter of minutes. It's also a great addition to fish tacos; top tacos with pesto and avocado for a taste treat. " Try fresh peppers from the garden - seeding them to control the heat & adding judiciously.

Directions

  1. Chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance their health-promoting properties while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add olive oil a little at a time at end. You want the pesto to be blended yet not smooth. It is best with a little texture.
  3. Serve at room temperature. Do not heat it.
