Radish Green Pepita Pesto

Here’s a slight twist on traditional Italian Genovese Pesto.  Radish greens are used in place of basil.  Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) are used in place of pinenuts.  This is my favorite way to use radish greens.  I have sautéed them in the past, but they tend to be a tad bitter.  Making a pesto helps to balance out the bitterness.  I’ve also made it with and without Parmigiano-Reggiano.  It works well either way.  You just may need a bit more salt if you leave out the cheese.

Dressing of the Month

Lemon Vinaigrette

Lemon vinaigrette is a simple and easy to make dressing.  It’s the same proportions and technique as Basic Vinaigrette Dressing.  You can easily double or halve the recipe.  Use this on green salads, roasted or steamed veggies, to marinate chicken or fish, or as a dressing for a grain salad.  You can use this same recipe and swap out the lemon juice and zest for orange, grapefruit, or even lime.

Sweet and zesty, this dressing goes best on a crisp green salad with large chunks of crisp vegetables.  This recipe is modeled after the Wishbone Russian Dressing, which is more sweet and red than most other Russian dressings, which tend to be creamier and tangier (because of mayonnaise, chili sauce or ketchup and horseradish).
