Avocado Pesto

This pesto recipe is a great dinner, lunch, summer salad…Ohh…it’s just great! One word of advice, eat right away- we know what happens to avocados when exposed to air!

1 bunch basil leaves (no stems)
½ cup pistachios (or pine nuts, walmuts)
2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
2 tbs fresh lemon juice (about ½ of a lemon)
3 cloves garlic
½ cup olive oil or water (same taste fewer calories with water)
Salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Wiz all the ingredients in your food processor until smooth and creamy! This is good served with your favorite pasta or mixed with a salad!
