  • 2 cup herbs of choice- I used half basil half parsley
  • 3 tbs non fat greek yogurt
  • 3 tbs orange flavored vinegar I used and am loving the Orange Muscat vinegar from Trader Joes. Any sweet fruity vinegar would be delicious, but really any vinegar will work just fine. This just give it a sweet hint.
  • 20 g toasted pine nuts I find these to a great price at Trader Joes
  • 1 clove garlic or frozen dorot cube
  • sprinkle of salt pepper, and pinch of red pepper flakes


  • Pulse everything in a small food processor until it's your desired pesto consistency.
  • Serve on the side of chicken or fish, or on a sandwich! I love them with these Moroccan chicken skewers!
