We love pesto at our house.
No, seriously, we LOVE pesto...
kind of love.
I collected fresh greens from my garden, and realized that I didn't have quite enough for the pesto that I wanted to make.
So, I added a little spinach and lettuce and even a few mustard greens and carrot tops.
To give it more of a "Cajun" twist, instead of olive oil, I use a local PECAN OIL.
And as an alternative to the pine nuts, I used pecans (and sometimes I use pumpkin seeds, or pistachios, or....well, you get the idea.)
To complete the "cajun" theme, I added a dash of cayenne. We like the kick.
Oh! And, if you make up a batch...call me, I'll be right over....

Here is how I did it:
