Pesto will always boldly save love

Last Friday I found myself with a short period of time before guests arrived when I had nothing to do. I used that time to make this appetizer. Its very simple and unoriginal but it got enough compliments that I have decided to post it anyway.

you will need:

basil pesto
deli sliced smoked turkey breast
any sort of white bread, lightly toasted, crusts trimmed, cut into triangles
watercress, stems trimmed

I'm not giving exact amounts with this recipe because its so easy to make exactly as much as you might need.

In a small bowl combine pesto and mayonnaise in roughly equal portions. Put a some turkey breast on each bread triangle followed by a little dollop of pesto-mayonnaise and then stick 1 or 2 watercress leaves on top.

I said it was simple.

I recently decided that pesto is the single most effective tool for deceptively easy cooking. You can take almost anything, load it up with pesto, and it will taste good, and people will respect it.

The most devilish part of all is that Pesto is so damned esy to make itself. Plus, you can freeze it forever and nobody will be abel to taste the difference.

I will try the recipe post haste - it looks great.

Whats your feeling on non-basil pestos?

No good.

I love Cilantro, but not in the realm of Italian cooking - it might be the only personality trait I inherited from my Dad (raised to love Basil and hate Cilantro like a good little Italian boy).

The only other non-basil Pesto I've had was made from what we didn't smoke the night before. It made me see funny colors.

My feelings on non-basil pestos are mostly positve. Basil is probably best though. Sage also makes a good pesto.
