Pesto Gone Wild – Starring Avocado and Spinach

I am a huge fan of Pesto. I love it with pasta, in sandwiches on pizza, with eggs…the list goes on and on.

What I love most about pesto is not only the various ways you can use it, but also the various ways you can make it.

This particular pesto recipe features avocado and spinach as the star ingredients.

Avocado, spinach, fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, lime juice and Parmesan...mouth is officially watering after listing the ingredients in this pesto recipe.

This pesto literally brightens up your meal. The beautiful color makes any dish you prepare with it more appetizing. We tossed it with spaghetti and grilled chicken and it made for a very springy meal. Don’t be fooled, it’s actually quite heavier than you would think. The creaminess of the avocado makes it feel like a real pasta sauce.

And all you folks with nut allergies, you finally have a pesto you can enjoy!

Aye Carumba, Chimichurri!

Ahhh Chimichurri. The smell of Chimichurri takes me back to the good ole days when me and the hubs were living in Buenos Aires. We didn’t know much about anything when we first moved there, but what we did know is that every restaurant we went to served chimichurri. And it was oh so good.

Italian Parsley, Cilantro, Fresh Oregano, Garlic....have I got your attention?!

The reason Chimichurri is so awesome, is because it tastes fabulous with everything. Grilled Chicken, Bread, Steak, Empanadas, Grilled Veggies, Salads, Pork Chops…the list goes on and on. And it’s fast and easy. Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and you have yourself a flavor packed condiment that rocks any meal.

Thank You Argentina, you are genius.
