No, really. We've actually counted them.
1. The depth of flavor
We love how rich and round this pesto tastes. It's almost a little cheesy.
2. The parsley
All that rich cheese and olive oil need a little something to pick them up. And the parsley seems to do that nicely. We're not sure we'd ever know it was in there without looking at the ingredients, but we're sure we'd miss it if it wasn't.
3. The color
It's so vividly green. It looks like summer. We get happy just seeing it on a slice of bread.
Get a baguette, some nice cheese, a few good olives, a bottle of wine and a container of Buddhapesto and you have a great, easy summer snack/lunch/light dinner.
Buddhapesto is available directly from the source at the Troy Farmers Market.
We've found it tends to be a little cheaper at Eats, though. (Eats is no more.) It's also available at the Honest Weight Food Co-op.
