Pistachio Pesto Ingredients

Sandwich Ingredients


For the Pistachio Pesto

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until combined (blend on medium until most of the nuts have been finely chopped, but some texture remains).
  2. Taste and adjust for salt and lemon, and set aside.

For the Sandwiches

  1. Add 1 teaspoon of the oil to a large skillet on medium high heat and add two slices of the sourdough, making sure to coat the bottoms of the bread thoroughly in the oil.
  2. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of oil over the tops of the bread, and toast until both sides are golden brown or to your liking. Repeat with the remaining bread and oil and allow to cool before assembling the sandwiches.
  3. Begin by spreading some pesto on each slice of bread and build your sandwich by layering the sliced fire roasted red pepper halves on one piece of bread, and the arugula and mozzarella on the other piece.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella with freshly ground black pepper, and sandwich the two bread halves together. Repeat with the other two slices of bread. Enjoy!
