Pesto is essentially a blank canvas with a few minor guidelines to do it right. First, pick your favorite herbs-- the fresher the better (especially picked moments before from your personal Seedsheet). Make sure to have an acid (lemon), garlic (obviously), and some kind of oily nuts or seeds. Pine nuts are the classic choice, but you can always try using walnuts or toasted almonds to get a slightly different result. As far as the cheese, let's just say it's not mandatory...but we'll leave that one up to you. Check out one of our favorite delicious pesto recipe sketches here.
