Seasonal Pesto

In an aromatic sauce like pesto, a little goes a long way in terms of flavor and nutrient power. You can vary the herb or nut choice to support different health conditions. For example, cilantro can be used to aid in chelating heavy metals and walnuts can be used for added omega-3 fats to combat inflammation.

This sauce pairs nicely with spiralized zucchini noodles.
