Not so stupid dill pesto

Who doesn’t love a pesto?! I certainly do, especially a home made one. Last weekend I whipped up a quick dill pesto to have with salmon and it was such a hit that I made some more this weekend. It’s absolutely perfect with fish but it’s equally as amazing turned into a dressing for an avocado and cucumber salad. Stir a spoonful through a dollop of mayonnaise for something different to accompany your fish or chicken, mix it up with some bread or rice crumbs and use it to stuff a chicken or sandwich between 2 salmon fillets,  or simply use it as a dip with crackers. It’s possibilities are almost endless! And best of all, it’s additive and dairy free 🙂

1 cup of dill

1 clove of garlic

1/4 cup of raw pistachios or pine nuts

1 tbsp of tahini

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

3 spring onions

pinch of salt

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blitz to a fine texture. Yep, it’s that simple!!
