  • Summary

    You can make this pesto and add it to any vegetable, protein, grain dish, or salad. Last week, I added the minty pesto to my Lamb & Sausage Orzo Salad with Grilled Artichokes. Delicious! This week, I’m using the pesto with roasted zucchini. Toss your favorite veggie with this pesto, throw it in the oven, and you’ve got a fantastic side dish to any meal! You can make the pesto ahead and keep in your fridge for 5 days prior to using it, too! Easy & Yummy!
