We are throwing some serious summer salad vibes lately. With local produce at our fingertips, why not?

Today and tomorrow (Saturday), we are featuring spinach from FRL Gardens from Martintown and spinach seedlings from Pitt Street Gardens, YEAY! Which, for this recipe you will require both.

1 cup of fresh spinach
1 cup of fresh basil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts
2 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt + pepper
3 cups of gluten free pasta

~ Cook pasta, drain and set aside
~ Combine all other ingredients in a blender or food processor, blend until smooth.
~ Add pesto to pasta, you can add a splash of olive oil if the mixture is a bit dry.
~🌿 Garnish and enjoy!

This is a big salad, feel free to chop the portions in half, I did.

Of course we have pine nuts, pasta and olive oil in bulk for you 😁
