My gosh, I love salad – especially Caesar salad – here is a Caesar salad.  With the

lemon-anchovy pungency of Caesar dressing, it packs quite a punch.  After the

video, I’ve included a pesto recipe in case you want to add it to your caesar salad

Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe      Pesto recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 3 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Special equipment needed: A food processor  (Check Cuisinart Food Processors)

1 Combine the basil in with the pine nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor. (If you are using walnuts instead of pine nuts and they are not already chopped, pulse them a few times first, before adding the basil.) Add the garlic, pulse a few times more.

2 Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add the grated cheese and pulse again until blended. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Serve with pasta, or over baked potatoes, or on a salad.   Recipe by Simplyrecipes.com
