This is a simple and delicious recipe for a pesto summer salad.
2 large handfuls of basil leaves
1 peeled clove of garlic
2 table spoons of pine nuts
3 tablespoons of parmesan/romano
1 table spoon olive oil
If you like your pesto authentc then you need to use a motar and pestle and some elbow grease to grind and pound the above ingredients into a pulp
otherwise cheat and use a food processor the flovours do not mingle as effectivily but it is quick
Marinate some chicken breasts in the pesto a table spoon of brown sugar and 1-2 table spoons of balsamc. Marinate at least 2 hours or overnight
Cook the chicken breasts in a pan on the stove or in a BBQ until they are firm. If I am using a pan I put glad bake in the bottom and cook on that with the lid on... fast and clean! Allow them to rest before you eat them at least 5mins under foil
Create a dressing:
Juice one lemon
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
1 chilli deseeded
1 clove garlic
Place in saucepan and heat until flavours infuse. Allow to cool before use
Tomtoes(I like minature ones cut in half)
Capsicum which has been roasted
cooked chicken breasts cut into pieces
add all ingredients to a bowl and toss.
Eat and enjoy!!
