Pesto is delicious, but it contains a lot of calories and fat. I created a summer pesto that tastes great on chicken, salmon and even zoodles. There’s less fat thanks to no cheese and no oil. It’s uniquely flavored with an herby, salty-sweetness. My base is pistachios instead of pine nuts. Pistachios have a wonderful flavor and contain less fat than most nuts. The extra punch of flavor means I can use less of them, therefore, saving even more calories. You can thin this out, or leave it kind of chunky like mine. I also sneak spinach into it so that we all get a vitamin bonus.
