A Perfect Pesto to Power Your Summer

Summer is here and I’ve shifted into pesto mode, making and freezing as much of the sauce as I can to remain stocked through the season. Pesto is easy to buy, of course. But while most homemade sauces are better than their store-bought counterparts, the quality delta between supermarket pesto and the batch you make yourself is particularly wide. Nothing compares with homemade.

Luckily, all you need to do to make it yourself is put five ingredients in a food processor. That’s it! (The traditional method involves a mortar and pestle, but we live in the age of technology.) I buy the ingredients in bulk and feed the finished product to my children, who call it “green pasta” and can’t get enough.

So put our pesto recipe to work, and tell me about your own summer staples. I’m at [email protected], and I love to hear your suggestions and help solve your kitchen quandaries.

This straightforward pesto recipe by Florence Fabricant will power your summer if you let it. Double, triple, even quadruple it; pesto freezes perfectly. I freeze it in small portions so I can defrost only what I need at a given time.

Picture yourself sitting down to this meal somewhere outdoors on a summer night. Pretty good, no? The recipe is by Lidey Heuck, and while it’d be undoubtedly more delicious to toast the pine nuts for the salad, as she suggests, you can skip it if you’re pressed for time.
