Pistachio Mint Pesto

  • This pistachio mint pesto has so much robust flavor and is a great topping for all grilled meats, pasta, and any sort of dipping or cheese and meat platter!

    Since I have a feeling most of you who will be having friends and family over on Memorial Day weekend will be using the outdoor grill to some extent, I thought I’d share this amazing pistachio mint pesto that I made.

    It literally can go on everything and we slathered it over a giant piece of steak and it was so flavorful.

    I love pistachios. They have such a robust and different flavor than all the other nuts. Their color is so vibrant too.

    I never thought to make pistachio into pesto but why not? You use pine nuts with basil pesto so why not just swap out the basil and pine nuts for pistachio and mint? I’m telling you — flavor city.

    Do yourself a favor and buy the already shelled pistachios. Your thumbs will thank you, especially the amount you’ll need for this recipe, haha

    The possibilities are endless! All you need is a food processor and a handful of ingredients!
