I love pesto. I especially love pesto that uses any, and all kinds of greens and herbs! The combinations are truly endless in the wide world of pesto. Here, I chose spinach and chives for a super spring-y pesto to top pasta, veggies, grain salads, options are endless. —Lindsey S. Love | Dolly and Oatmeal
fresh spinach, washed and stems trimmed
garlic clove, roughly chopped
fine grain sea salt
extra virgin olive oil
a squeeze of lemon juice
Combine spinach, chives, garlic, pistachios and salt in a food processor, while the motor is running, pour olive oil through the top. Stop and scrape a few times until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. Pesto can also be kept in the freezer for up to 5 months.
