Lemon Herb Pistachio Pesto

If you follow me on instagram you already know that I spent Sunday with the hubs in search of a farmers market.  I was eager to find some farm fresh produce to cook with for the week.  Luckily, after a quick search Chris found some great farmers markets in Northern Jersey, more specifically Ridgewood (my new favorite town).  That night we ate an early dinner with some of our farmers market finds that consisted of (store bought) sliced roasted chicken, green beans & potatoes all topped with this lemon herb pistachio pesto, quickly quick & tasty.

Read on to learn how to make my lemon herb pistachio pesto that is delicious on poultry, veggies, potatoes, bread, pasta... & pretty much anything.
