Although they say when life gives you lemons..make lemonade.. I say make a yummy lemony pesto instead..
In the Ode to the Lemon, Poet Pablo Neruda called the juice of a lemon ‘nature’s most intense liqueur’….
For 4 people
remove the peel from 4 (uber) fresh lemons..place in food processor with 3/4 cup shelled almonds and 1 tablespoon of salted capers 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Blend..use this pesto to dress a salad, or as a sauce for cous cous or a refreshing sauce for cold summer pasta or even a hot pasta dish..
