Ways to Use Homemade Pesto Sauce
Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On July 30, 2010 @ 4:27 pm In Garden,How To,Recipes | 16 Comments
Rather than let the garden herbs grow out of control, make pesto instead. I have found that it doesn’t really matter how much of which kind of herb you use…as long as you have enough basil in there to give it that basil flare.
I did not measure my pesto as I made it…but I’ll tell you what I put in it…and then just added a little salt and olive oil to make it taste just the way I wanted it!
Just throw everything in a food processor or blender and mix until desired consistency. Use immediately or freeze for use in future meal.
It’s perfect for pasta…Grilled Chicken Spinach Pesto Pasta .
It’s perfect for dipping tomatoes.
It’s perfect for making a pesto vinaigrette (recipe below).
It’s perfect for spreading onto a grilled chicken sandwich.
Or you could just drink it out of the bowl.
Well, that may be a little much?!
Well, maybe not?!
Place ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Add a touch of water if needed to get it to desired dressing consistency. Serve with salad.
