It’s madness really – why on earth was I desperate to find ways to use those lack luster leafy greens when I could have been making this walnut kale pesto the whole time?!
This walnut kale pesto is not only a lifesaver recipe for helping me clear my crisper drawer, but it is a fresh, welcome update to its sometimes overplayed, classic counterpart – basil pesto.
This pesto recipe comes from Janet Fletcher’s new cookbook The Wine Country Table.This book is chock-full of gorgeous imagery from 23 stunning California farms and wineries as well as 50 vibrant recipes inspired by California’s wine-growing regions. When the lovely folks at California Wines sent me this book I was desperately in need of a little ray of California sunshine because we have been missing the west coast so badly! Only a few short months and we will be there for our summer visit. Until then though, I’ll be getting my Cali fix by cooking more delicious recipes from this book!
I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE LOVING THE WINE COUNTRY TABLE! HERE ARE 3 MORE RECIPES FROM THE COOKBOOK THAT WERE FEATURED AROUND THE INTERNET THAT CAPTURED MY ATTENTION AND HAVE HAD MY TASTE BUDS BEGGING FOR MORE!
