This is a simple traditional pesto with a little bit of fresh lemon juice. I’m not a purist whatsoever and find that most traditional pesto’s need a little bit of zing to freshen up the heaviness of the extra virgin olive oil and pine nuts. So this version is my own go-to traditional pesto that I love to use on all sorts of things. It’s perfect with chicken, shrimp or your favorite white fish even better, serve it with either of those mixed into pasta. OH! On pizza too… as you can see the possibilities are endless if you dare to be creative. Enjoy!
