I am all about zesty, flavorful food. This pesto spread really delivers with bursts of sun dried tomatoes and lemon. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! It's Friday night so, let's do this!
SPINACH, WALNUT SUN DRIED TOMATO PESTO SPREAD
3/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
3/4 cup raw walnuts
1-1/2 cup spinach
1-2 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
Pealed and sliced pieces persian cucumbers
Fresh basil for garnish
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and process until combined well. I don't like to process it too much, leaving this mixture a little chunky. Use your desired amount of garlic and lemon juice. The more you use the zestier it will be, so I'll leave that up to you... Placed a small scoup of the pesto mixture on top of pealed and sliced persian cucumbers and top with a piece of fresh basil. It's so fresh and flavorful!
