i made this pesto from Bon Appetit last week when i was having friends over and it was so good we ended up eating straight from the bowl on crackers. it8217;s packed with parsley and mint which are both really good for you so i8217;m going to file this under 8220;healthy.8221; it8217;s also much less expensive to make than most pestos because it doesn8217;t call for pine nuts which are really expensive. this appetizer is so good and so easy. you can broil it right before your guests arrive so it8217;ll be hot, or you can broil it and eat the whole thing between two people, like ivan and i did 8211; joanie
• in a blender or preferably a food processor, add the ingredients for the pesto minus the olive oil. on low setting slowly drizzle over the olive oil until there is a smooth consistency. set pesto aside.
cut the french loaf in half and drizzle olive oil over the top of the bread. cover the bread with slices of mozzarella cheese. slice the cherry tomatoes and add to a bowl, toss with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. evenly disperse the tomatoes on top of the mozzarella cheese.
