A healthy pesto recipe can be a jam packed nutrient dense side, sauce, dip or base to a meal! We love making pesto because it’s quick, easy and loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Trust us when we say the taste is a million times better when you make it at home versus buying it at the store!
