Pistachio Pesto Picture Book Recipe

…I first saw this pistachio pesto recipe in the July 2015 issue of Bicycling magazine, where it was featured as a post-ride protein-rich snack to be used on pasta, on toast, with vegetables, or any way you like.

Bicycling Magazine - Pistachio PestoAs you can see with the notes I scratched on the Bicycling article above, I then modified the ingredients slightly by adding garlic (you’ve gotta’ have garlic in pesto!), cutting the salt content, and also adding a zesty shot of balsamic vinegar.

Here’s what you need to make pistachio pesto as laid out in the easy to use step-by-step picture book recipe.
