Add salt and peppers after the greens are processed.  Cover and keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or use immediately with cooked pasta and slightly cooked greens.


Pesto has many uses; get creative with how you eat yours! It is a delicious additive to sandwiches, pizzas and soups as many people know. It is also a wonderful marinade, and lovely on fish as well. Pesto pairs nicely with hummus to make a fabulous dip for crackers and veggies–a party favorite. However, the most popular way to have pesto is with pasta! Check out our delicious Buckwheat Pasta and Spinach Pesto Recipe also on our blog. The delicious meal is based off our very own spinach pesto. Do enjoy!
