Healthy Winter Pesto


Chard-for-Healthy-Winter-PestoWe love this recipe when it’s cold outside and Summer seems like a distant dream. Phytonutrient rich & an excellent source of antioxidants — Swiss chard not only makes this recipe delicious — it is rich in vitamin C, K & A. All you need is a food processor & 4 simple ingredients and the sweet fresh taste of O Basil Pesto & Summer can be enjoyed anytime. Healthy is good!

Process the O Fresh Basil Olive Oil, Swiss chard, garlic, pine nuts, cheese and salt and pepper in food processor or blender until mixture is pureed.

Toss with pasta, smear on french bread, add to cooked white beans or spoon over salmon.
