Hello from Mexico City! I’m on a much-needed post-cookbook vacation, eating many tacos and drinking many margaritas. You can probably catch a glimpse of the trip on Instagram stories—we’re cookieandkate.
Since we talked all about basil pesto earlier this week, I thought I’d share a collection of my favorite recipes that include pesto today, in some form or another. I love to make unconventional pestos with arugula, kale, cilantro and parsley. Sometimes I even throw in an avocado to make them creamy. They’re a great way to incorporate fresh greens in regular meals.
You can view all of my pesto recipes here. You can also find a few of my favorite herb/nut combinations in my cookbook. I included my basic pesto recipe on the cut-out cheat sheet, so you can tape it to the inside of your cabinet for easy reference! Learn more and get your copy right here.
“This recipe is divine! I’m a newlywed looking for easy, but delicious recipes and this was exactly it; my husband loved it! Plus I just planted basil…making a perfect excuse to make this all the time!” – Grace
