Pesto would have to be one of the most versatile condiments.. serve it as a dip, a spread, a pasta sauce, a topping. There are so many lovely ways. And, when made fresh with good quality ingredients pesto is also powerfully nutritious (while being the yummiest addition to almost anything).
Pesto is a fantastic condiment to have at hand in the fridge. Bought pestos are generally great, but some can be very high in salt, oil and additives.
Homemade pesto is natural, can taste even better and be extrememly nutritious. Having a food processor makes pesto production very easy. However, a hand held mixer works perfectly fine too.
