Pesto is a kind of spread or dip made with walnuts as the base. It is normally perked up with garlic, olive oil, etc. In this exciting variant, we have made a pesto that imbibes the tang of sundried tomatoes and the herby magic of basil.

The nutty, tangy, herby taste of this Sundried Tomatoes and Basil Pesto is really a pleasant surprise for your taste buds. You can use it to make pastas or employ it as a spread or dip.

Now that you have some sun-dried tomatoes on hand, we suggest you also have a go at recipes like Sundried Tomato Risotto or Sun Dried Tomatoes and Cheese Roll .
