I needed the perfect sauce to top my Walnut Crusted Grilled Tri Tip, so I thought why not incorporate more walnuts, add some fresh arugula and green onions, then throw in some blue cheese… because what is better on a freshly grilled steak, then flavorful blue cheese!
It’s creamy, delicious, dairy free, vegan and PALEO!
This Pesto sauce is perfect on chicken, pork or fish, but I also have a couple unique recipe uses for the scrumptious sauce that I will release tomorrow and Saturday!
- 1 cup fresh sage
- 1 cup fresh Italian parsley
- 4 cloves garlic (crushed)
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 cup walnuts
- ½ cup olive oil
- 1 lemon (juiced)
- ¼ cup water
Begin by adding the sage and parsley to a food processor.
Next, add the garlic, black pepper and walnuts.
Puree in the food processor for 15 seconds then add the lemon juice. Turn the food processor back on and add the olive oil through the pour spout at the top.
Next, add the water while continuing to puree an additional 30-60 seconds or until all ingredients are combined.
Voila! A simple, healthy and yummy sauce made in less than 5 minutes!
Thank you to the California Farm Water Coalition for the delicious California Walnuts, they’re like the gift that keeps on giving!
