And a nice walk home.
The best part of the picnic was a quick garden pesto I made. It was an incredibly warm winter, which means our chard just kept going. Not to mention how big our garlic is getting.
1 1/2 Cups of fresh chard (finely chopped)
1 medium garlic leaf (finely chopped)
1 healthy pinch of sea salt
1/2 lemon squeezed
Olive Oil, mix it as you add it until it looks more like a pesto than a salad
Mix ingredients together and pack in jar (well it’s for a picnic) or let sit for a few hours to “stew”. Serve with fresh bread, cheese, salami, olives and an avocado, some place with a wonderful view.
