PESTO, you guys. I’m going to be completely honest with you in that I don’t have a ton of experience making pesto; however, I do have a ton of experience eating it 😉 Lately it’s been my favorite dip for raw veggies. And while it’s most commonly associated with pasta, my favorite way to eat it is actually with eggs and toast. Anyone else with me on that one? Oh, my mom also puts it on salmon… so good! In terms of savory food, it pretty much goes on everything. And, since scallions, peas, and other pesto-ready herbs are popping up at farmers markets, I wanted to make you a spring version of pesto. Spring basil pesto with peas and scallions, to be exact. And walnuts and garlic and lemon and olive oil 🙂
