Pesto BLT

At first we weren’t sure whether to call this a Pesto BLT or a Bacon Caprese, but whatever you call it, it’ll definitely be delicious. Crispy bacon paired with a chunky pesto walnut spread, fresh tomatoes, and creamy mozzarella makes for a fresh, flavorful sandwich that you’ll never want to end.


INGREDIENTS:

• 2 Sandwich Thins, toasted (any flavor works!)

• Pesto walnut spread (recipe below)

• 1-2 pieces of crispy bacon

• 1 oz fresh mozzarella, torn

• 1 small tomato, sliced

• Fresh arugula


PREPARATION:

1. Take your toasted Sandwich Thins and set side by side. On one of them, add the pesto, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, and arugula. Top with the remaining Sandwich Thin. Enjoy!


For the walnut pesto spread:

Ingredients:

• 1 cup fresh basil

• ⅓ cup walnuts

• ¼ cup freshly grated parmigiano reggiano

• 3 tablespoons olive oil, added gradually

• Flaky salt to taste


Preparation:

1. In a food processor, add the basil and walnuts. Purée until the ingredients are finely minced.

2. Gradually add olive oil, pulsing the food processor in between additions.

3. Add the cheese and pulse a few times to mix in.
