One of the many culinary delicacies I discovered when I visited the U.S. for the first time is pesto. For me it was an explosion of flavors incomparable to anything I'd ever experienced. I quickly discovered that pesto is a combination of herbs, garlic and a type of nut. Not only is it quite versatile, but also it's very easy to prepare.
Traditional pesto is made with basil, but it can also be made with parsley, cilantro or, like in this instance, pistachios.
Pesto can be used in many various dishes. Add it to pasta with a little parmesan cheese, maybe as a sauce on your salmon or even on your pizza! Add a tablespoon of pesto to your vegetable soup or even on a plain piece of toast, the options are truly endless. How do you enjoy your pesto?
