Can’t you just taste summer when you eat pesto? It’s like being transported to Italy just by scent alone. And, while it’s difficult to improve on a classic basil and pine nut pesto, this healthy walnut pesto recipe shines in its own right. Loaded with herby fresh basil and heart-healthy, meaty walnuts, this pesto can be used in place of any pesto–on noodles, on meats, as a dip, with a spoon…

Fresh basil, is, of course available at your local grocer, but look for it in abundance at your local farmers’ market, or try growing your own. (Fresh basil is literally the ONLY thing I am able to grow in my garden.) For the record, the aroma of fresh-cut basil is one of life’s greatest gifts. True story.
