Homemade Pesto

Who doesn’t love pesto? I tend to forget to make it, though.  I recently had my memory jogged when a friend brought some of her homemade pesto over to spread on grain free crackers that we made together. It’s a creamy flavorful topping that’s fantastic on meats, crackers, or even used as a dip for raw veggies.

With just a few ingredients, and made right in your blender, it’s something you can make easily to dress up a regular meal.
