Dairy-free and Paleo Radish Greens Pesto makes use of those beautiful radish greens. Don't throw them away, use them to make this delicious pesto. A lovely topping for grilled fish or chicken! | This is so good... Here are two facts about me: I love food and I love to save money.  So when I spend money on food, I want to get the most bang for the buck.  I want the food to healthful and nourishing.  I want it to taste good.  And I want to make sure that nothing is wasted.  Today’s recipe is all about using the whole vegetable: Radish Greens Pesto (Dairy-free).

Last week I posted a recipe for Simple Oven-Roasted Radishes and the greens were so beautiful that I knew they had to used in their raw state.  My favorite way to use raw greens is in dressings or sauces, so pesto is one of my go-tos.

Dairy-free and Paleo Radish Greens Pesto makes use of those beautiful radish greens. Don't throw them away, use them to make this delicious pesto. A lovely topping for grilled fish or chicken! | This is so good... This recipe makes use of the greens from one bunch of radishes.  If you haven’t tried radish greens before, they are slightly spicy (like arugula).  They pair really well with tart flavors like lemon, so I used both the zest and juice in this recipe.  I decided to keep this Radish Greens Pesto dairy-free and I think it came out spot on!

You will need a blender or a mini-food processor to make this Radish Greens Pesto.  Prep takes a couple of minutes and it’s beautifully blended in under a minute.  The perfect topping for some grilled fish or Salmon Patties.  It would also be delicious over chicken, scrambled into eggs, or mixed into some steamed or roasted vegetables.  I will admit to eating a spoonful straight from the blender!
