Wild Garlic Pesto Salsa

Wild Garlic Pesto Salsa

All the fresh green flavours from a salsa verde ad some creaminess that you get from a pesto, but without the cheese / dairy that some can’t have and I think just makes this taste zinger and more fresh from the meadows.

Summery dream that I’ve been drizzling on anything and everything. I will have a jar of this, or very similar, in my fridge for the foreseeable.


    • Large fistful of wild garlic [If you can’t forage for it they sell it at Farmdrop along with the best selection from an online store I’ve ever seen, and with ethics and thought too.]
    • 3 sprigs of basil, stems removed
    • 1/4 cup pine nuts
    • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1/2 lemon juiced
    • sprig parsley
    • 1 tsp dijon mustard
    • Large pinch sea salt (by far my favourite is Maldon and I buy it in a huge bucket which makes it way cheaper and I never run out!    Maldon Organic Maldon Sea Salt 1.5 Kg

Roughly chop all the green leaves, add to a small processor bowl, along with the rest of the ingredients keeping half of the olive oil back. Blitz until a thick sauce, then drizzle in extra oil until you have a thick salsa that can be drizzled or dolloped as you prefer.

+TOP TIP you can freeze this perfectly in ice cube blocks to pop out when you nee to perk up a sauce, a piece of fish or a salad for months to come!
