Binks has always made the most incredible Pesto and gives it to us each summer. Each summer I go basil and tomatoes in my garden. I love fresh caprese salad more than an other salad. So Yummy! My basil plant is killer this year and my tomatoes aren’t ready yet so I gave making Fresh Garden Pesto a try. You guys it’s so easy and oh my gosh it tastes AMAZING. I also love that a traditional caprese salad and adding more ingredients to increase the flavor profile.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was and YOU GUYS IT MAKES EVERYTHING SO DELICIOUS! Pesto has such a clean and fresh taste. My husband was so impressed and asked for it two nights in a row.
- Wash basil thoroughly and remove stems
- Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until you have reached desired consistency.
- Serve on caprese salad, pasta, pizza, chicken or veggies. Sauce can be made into marinade as well
