I don't use nuts in mine...we like it better without.
lol Constance - it's just pesto your way - maybe you are putting too many nuts in? I have done that before and the feeling I get when I eat it is "dry" - sometimes when I eat walnuts I get the same "dry" feeling.
But it's still pesto in my book - when I do ONLY basil, olive oil, kosher salt, and garlic THAT is closer to just a basil dressing! lol Dang, it's good on so many things - slathered on each side of ciatatta to make a panino with water-packed mozzarella, fresh roasted red pepper, prosciutto, kalamata olives, spring mix - yum!!!
