Posted on May 17 2020
Well this I had to share! I have long awaited this recipe from my friend Jen (all my good recipes come from her) My husband and I had this at her house several years ago and we have thought about it often so we were so excited she shared with us! What I love about this recipe its so unique and also I love love pesto!!
1 bag Red or white baby potatoes 1/4'd
2 ribs Celery chopped
2 cups Cherry tomatoes 1/4'd
1/4 cup Sun dried tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup Green onions
1/4 cup Pine nuts (roasted)
1 cup Mayonaise
1/2 cup Basil Pesto
2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp Rosemary
1/4 the baby potatoes and put them in a large bowl
Add to the bowl, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp rosemary, and 1/2 tsp pepper.
Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes and removed when cooked to your liking. Not too soft because you don't want them to fall apart in the salad.
Roast 1/4 of pine nuts in a pan until slightly roasted, and set aside.
Mix together in a bowl, 1 cup mayo, with 1/2 cup of Basil pesto. Add 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar, and 1 tsp olive oil to thin it out. Taste and add more pesto if you please, and salt and pepper to your taste.
Next, chop celery, green onion, sun dried tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes. Add the pine nuts to this as well.
Toss it all together, the potatoes, the pesto dressing and the veggies and nuts.
Top with fresh Basil and voila! Enjoy!
