Lemon Balm Pesto-Mediterranean Diet Recipes

Lemon Balm Pesto with Walnuts, Cilantro and Parsley


I love using lemon balm in Mediterranean Diet recipes. It is a delicious and bright ingredient that also offers up huge health benefits. To learn more about the benefits of lemon balm, check out my lemon balm post here.

When your garden gives you lots of fragrant, leafy green herbs, use them to make pesto! I love this combination of Lemon Balm, Parsley and Cilantro, but you can make substitutions with whatever herbs you happen to have.

This garlicky, lemony, nutty blend packs all the flavors of summer in such a delicious way.  Use it as a topping for breads, pastas, veggies and anything else that needs a flavor boost.
