Pesto Vinaigrette the Fast and Easy Way

Preparation time: 5 minutes

2 peeled cloves of garlic
1 ½ T walnuts or pine nuts
Fresh basil leaves, about a ¼ cup, packed tight
6 T olive oil, preferably extra-virgin
3 T vinegar, white-wine

Method:

 

1. Use a food processor
to combine nuts and garlic until they are finely chopped.
2. Add basil leaves to the processor and continue chopping. Turn processor off
and scrape sides to ensure that you have removed all parts of the mixture to
the center of the container.
3. Continue blending as you slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream. Once
all of the olive oil has been added, continue the process with the vinegar.
Whisk dressing and it is ready for use as a salad dressing, sauce or marinade.

Yield: 3/4c. This will give you enough for 4 portions of a sauce and between
6 and 8 portions as a dressing.
