Recipe: Almonds and tomatoes pesto

Sauces, dressings and dips with herbs
July 25, 2013

HarvestsI'm harvesting many aromatic herbs and tomatoes this month, but also cucumbers, chilies and peppers.
I'm drying herbs for my new Mediterranean aromatic mixture, and also for the delicious 10 herbs tea.

TomatoesI used some red tomatoes for a new recipe of pesto: plum tomatoes and Muchamiel tardio tomatoes.

BasilI have also a lot of lettuce leaf basil: I'm preparing large batches of pesto, I have already stored basil for winter, and I try new recipes like this one.

We used almost all of this pesto to season spaghetti, and then spread the rest on cheese sandwiches.
