Tag Archives: parsley pesto recipe
We’ve got some pesto fans in our family, and have enjoyed finding different combinations to make a nice variety in our meals. If my kids will eat a salad because of a fresh pesto, who am I to stop them? This is a fun twist on traditional pesto, using parsley and cashews for a creamy, tasty pesto.
1 Bunch of Italian Parsley (about two cups)
1/2 cup Cashews, unsalted
1/2 cup Kerrygold Cheese
1 Large or 2 Small Garlic Cloves
1/2 cup Olive Oil (Depending on preference, you can can use 2/3 to make it more of a sauce-consistency)
Salt to taste
Handful of Grape Tomatoes
Add olive oil. We prefer thicker pesto, but you can add a bit more to make it more sauce-like. Add salt to taste.
Add a dollop of finished pesto to a bowl of baby spinach greens, and top with your favorite salad toppings.
Enjoy, and tell us how you like it!
