Garlic Scape Pesto

Author Notes: Browsing at one of the local farms for strawberries I came across garlic scapes. They were so beautiful and since I have only used them once before I bought some. It was recommended that they be used to make a type of pesto apparently divine on new potatoes. In the end I mixed some of the pesto with sour cream, heavy cream and salt to make a tasty salad dressing.DebS

Makes: about 2 cups

  • 1 bunch garlic scapes, chopped in 4 inch lengths
  • 1 handful walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Canola/Vegetable oil (optional)
  • salt
  • parmesan
  1. Whir garlic scapes and walnuts in food processor (or blender I suppose) until finely chopped. Keep the food processor running and drizzle in the walnut oil and olive oil until a paste forms. Add parmesan and salt to taste. Thin with more olive oil or canola/vegetable oil until pesto reaches desired consistency. I left mine pretty thick.
