One of the things I always make in the summer is fresh Basil Pesto. A recipe can be found in my cook book, Frankie at Home in the Kitchen.
This summer I did a little twist on the recipe. I grew some basil known as Lemon Basil. I made a batch of pesto with it and it was the most delicious pesto I have ever made! The color was very bright green and the flavors were fresh, lemony and bright.
I used this pesto on some salmon we grilled to share with friends. It was amazing! So may I suggest that next year you try to find a Lemon Basil plant. I found mine at Molbak’s Nursery in Woodinville.
