Zucchini Noodles Tossed In A Mint Pesto

  15 rater(s)

This pesto has a different flavor profile than people are used to. The dill and mint make this more of an herbaceous sauce, and the almonds bring a wonderfully nutty flavor. If you want to have a creamier sauce, add a little water and more lemon juice.
