The word ‘Pesto’ comes from the Italian for ‘pounding’ or ‘crushing’, traditionally done with a pestle & mortar. The name is now commonly used for mixtures containing various types of herbs, nuts, allium (genus for various onions & garlic) & cheese. Try this version with the red seaweed ‘Dulse’ !
This lovely fresh autumn salad is crunchy, colourful and satisfying. Smoked Kelp is used here instead of salt or any other seasoning; it is a lovely vegetarian alternative to bacon for those who like the smoked flavour in food.
The recipe for this salad taste very similar to the one that is available in the stores…only you know exactly what is in it ! The ones sold commercially often contain suspicious ingredients to preserve the colour and crunchiness.
