While still green in color, this recipe for homemade pesto puts a slight twist on the original. Made with fresh chives, scallions, and mint, this green pesto has a unique herb flavor, differentiating it from the traditional basil-based pesto. Red wine vinegar, parmesan, and garlic add robust and savory flavor to this delicious green pesto. Peanuts add a unique crunch. Blended together until creamy and smooth this pesto is best served over a bed of your favorite pasta or used as a spread on your favorite sandwich.
