Zucchini-courgette, olives and nuts pesto.

A variation of pesto sauce. Another delicious dip to spread on a slice of toasted bread. Here in Netherland they get crazy about pesto in every flavour.

Zucchini-courgette and olives pesto
Ingredients:
one medium-big courgette
a dozen of black olives (italian or turkish ones are better)
a handful of mixed nuts (pinenuts, pumpkin’s seeds, nuts and almonds)
some leaves of fresh basil
one clove of garlic (by taste)
olive oil

Proceeding:
Wash the courgette and chop it in dices.
Put the chopped courgette in a bowl with nuts, olives and garlic and mix with a blender.
Add washed and accurately dried basil leaves and mix again.
As you get a uniform sause, put in a jar and store in fridge covered with olive oil.
Enjoy on a slice of bread and remember not to melt pesto in the jar!

  1. Ciao complimenti per questo buonissimo pesto e ti ringrazio di voler partecipare al mio contest. Purtroppo però oltre al banner dovresti inserire la frase che ho chiesto di incollare (quella con il link al mio contest ed allo sponsor), potresti gentilmente completarlo? Mi spiacerebbe perdere la tua ricetta… ti aspetto fammi sapere!
