      I have made pesto with various greens, including Swiss chard, arugula, super greens mix, the traditional basil, parsley and even lacinato kale, sometimes tossing in a little dill. Having a garden bed of dill prompted me to seek out if anyone had yet made a pesto using dill as the predominant green. This recipe encouraged me to surge forth. I snipped the dill from the garden along with a few leaves of basil and recommended amount of parsley, adding one huge clove of Elephant Garlic for bite, freshly grated Parm to taste, pine nuts and walnuts. I appreciate this recipe!

      Truly wow! I too have a full garden bed of dill going to waste until now. I never knew dill could make such a wonderful pesto. Can't wait to add it to a chicken breast! I did make the following variations however: 1. 1/2 tsp salt for the pop 2. Almonds as the nuts since I didn't have anything else. 3. No parsely so I used just 2 cups of dill.

      I never even thought to use Dill in a pesto! What a great idea! This is delicious! I made mine using walnuts, and it is TDF! I served this on a pork tenderloin, like a crust. Thank you for a great recipe, I really look forward to trying it on bagels with smoked salmon... :-)
