Summer Southern Pesto Recipe

Summer Southern Pesto Recipe[yields]

Here’s a new twist on the classic pesto made with pine nuts or walnuts: basil with pecans. The slightly sweet, lighter taste of the pecans complements the full taste and aroma of the basil. This recipe uses more leaves and more nuts than the standard pesto recipe, making it better for your body and for your pocketbook.
