Positively.

It is the best.

Just a few lil’ baby red potatoes.

Some fresh parsley.

A bit o’ fresh mint.

Combined for a fabulous parsley pesto.

Perfect for Summer.

And Spring.

For Cinco de Mayo.

Or Mother’s Day.

Or simply eaten right out of your Tupperware with a spoon.

Anyway you choose, it’ll be tasty.

I promise.

It’s positively fabulous.

And the pine nuts, well let’s just say they add a fabulous kick to make this potato salad a real winner.

Gluten-Free and Vegan; what else can you ask for?

Simple. Pure. Perfect.

Yum.

Greetings from Canada!! Okay, this sounds awesome!! However…. up here Pine Nuts seem to be approximately the price of gold. Okay, maybe not that much, but still :( can another type of nut be used and taste equally good?

thanks so much Deb
