Ingredients

  • 1 cup shelled walnuts, even better if you toast and cool them first
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 3 sprigs of thyme, cleaned
  • Salt
  • Small splash of sherry vinegar (I used a generous splash and felt it dominated too much; go easy)
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced sun-dried tomatoes (oil or dry-packed will both work)
  • 1 loaf country bread, or a baguette, sliced

Instructions

  1. In food processor, coarsely grind walnuts, cheese, garlic, thyme, salt and vinegar. Stir in oil and tomatoes.
  2. Grill or toast bread. While hot, top each slice with a heaping teaspoon of pesto.
