Pistachio Pesto

Pesto is so delicious and can be made with a numerous combination of greens and nuts. This Pistachio Pesto utilizes pistachios and basil leaves. It’s just as delicious as traditional pesto, but pistachios are slightly cheaper than pine nuts, making it a great recipe alternative.


1. In food processor, pulse pistachios until a mixture of fine powder and small
pieces is achieved.
2. Add in all the basil leaves and process until well chopped.


3. Slowly add the oil and puree until smooth.

4. Season with salt to taste.  Serve on top of chicken or toss with pasta for a quick meal.
