Pesto is one of those recipes that can always be switched up and tweaked for what you have on hand and what’s in season. Right now garlic scapes are in season along with arugula and both make very tasty pesto. Just switch out the basil with either one and for the garlic scapes omit the garlic (unless your a garlic lover). One of my favorite snacks is to add this recipe to a toasted piece of bread and top it with balsamic glaze…yum! You can find the farms that grow basil here, garlic scapes here(recently at the Portsmouth farmers market many other farms had them as well), and arugula here(many other farms have this as well). Make sure you check out your local farmers market for all the seasonal goodies that are starting to pop up!
