Spring is finally here, and with it the bright colors and flavors of my favorite season. Pair this pesto with gourmet crackers or toasted baguette as a snack/appetizer or turn it into a meal by tossing with your favorite pasta and veggies like peas, asparagus or broccoli.

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peas, cooked
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest from 1/2 a lemon
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Salt & fresh cracked black pepper to taste

 

Preparation

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large food processor and process until texture is smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve & enjoy!
