Gluten-Free Basil Walnut Pesto

A perfect anytime, anywhere dish that can be whipped up in mere minutes.

Whether you’re entertaining for a crowd.

Or enjoying it in front of the Tube…

This pesto is sure to wow your little taste buds.

Spread atop a few gluten-free crackers, used as a dip with crudites or a spread in lieu of mayonnaise on sandwiches…

I’ve even been known to take a lil’ dollop and place it atop my breakfast omelets.

And alongside my evening grilled tofu, fish and poultry dishes.

Simply put. There’s no wrong way ta’ eat a good pesto.
