Watercress-Walnut Pesto

This alternative to basil and pine nut pesto is great on pizza, pasta, or straight from a spoon, which happens to be my 2-year-old daughter’s favorite way of eating it!

Instructions

  1. 1Combine everything in the bowl of a food processor and process for 30 seconds.
  2. 2Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then process for 30 seconds more. Transfer to a serving bowl, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
