Candler Creation Keepers won 3rd place with this tasty recipe.
- 1/2 c. basil leaves
- 1/2 c. greens (carrot tops, arugula, kale & spinach*)
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled
- 3 Tbsp TOASTED walnuts**
- 1/3 c. freshly grated parmesan***
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 c. olive oil
DON'T FORGET TO TOAST THE NUTS.
(To preserve any leftover pesto you might have, make sure you pour a layer of olive oil over the top of the green concoction. This will keep the pesto from turning colors and acquiring mold. Don't waste your pesto. It is too delicious. Pour some oil over it and refrigerate it.)
