Oh goodness I don't even know where to begin with this post.
I flagged this recipe back in August to make and made it about a month later. Bacon and Corn Pesto - interesting, right?
Oh dear this did not disappoint.
First off, it's unlike any other pesto you've ever had - so get rid of every preconceived notion of spinach, basil, pine nut, walnut, watercress, etc. pesto you know and be ready to have your taste buds blown out of this world.
I posted the recipe from Serious Eats above - but you know me, I did have to make some alterations for cooking ease and convenience.
This meal is filling, full of dynamic flavor combos and textures. It's creamy, crunchy, delicate and a bit of perfection in every single bite. It tastes rich and luxurious without the fat and is really full of summer flavors - but would be great year round in all honesty!
I know it sounds out there, but make it - and make it fast! It was by far one of the best meals we'd made in a while and we both agreed that it goes on the menu a few times a year.
