Cilantro Parsley Pea Pesto

Pasta

I’ve decided spring is officially here! The daffodils are blooming, I can walk outside without a heavy down coat, and the grass is green. Spring is a perfect time to renew and refresh. Eat tons of greens, eat berries, and in other words, eat seasonally. This recipe takes advantage of green peas and herbs that are in season. If you don’t have access to fresh green peas, no worries, just use frozen. Sometimes you have to just do the best you can do!

Cilantro Parsley Pea Pesto/Dip
Serves 4
This dip is pleasantly sweet and would pair well with something salty like pasta, chips or as a spread on a sandwich.
