Pesto Potato Salad with Green Beans

Good things gro-o-ow, in On-tar-i-o! Good things grow in other places, too! Someone brought me this lovely bush from the farmer's market near work yesterday:

Basil smells so good. People kept commenting on the delicious scent. It's trying to chat with the lucky bamboo on the other side of the cubicle.(My actual desk is much messier than that!)

So I made Pesto Potato Salad with Green Beans. Doesn't that sound great!? It is! There are lots of pesto recipes, this one from PPK is kinda neat because on top of the usual ingredients, it calls for walnuts and nutritional yeast.

Bon appetit!

I have a recipe for that in Vegan Mediterranean Kitchen. I made it once before and it was very tasty. I think it has pasta, too.

Oh good, people are still here even though we've been quiet! My blender didn't mush up the basil, maybe because there wasn't a lot in there.

Ooh that looks delicious... Perfect for this time of year. It's light, but not salad-light.
