Home Recipes Dinner Gluten Free Pesto with Dairy Free Option


It is pesto time of year.  And I take advantance of the plethera of it around.  The farmers markets have it for a buck or two a bunch and if you grow it yourself it grows like a weed!  We love pesto on everything from noodles, meats, and drizzled over fresh tomatoes!  Here is my favorite recipe that my sister in law gave me years ago!  Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth! Enjoy on pasta, over chicken or salmon! Freezes well!
