Keto Recipe – Zucchini Ribbons & Avocado Walnut Pesto

In this video

Pesto is by definition a sauce made from basil, pine nuts, and a boatload of olive oil. This recipe reduces the oil and adds a creamy texture to this already keto-friendly pasta dressing. Also, if you are anything like me and go broke buying avocados, you certainly don’t want to spend your hard earned (keto) dough on pine nuts at a whopping $9 for a small jar. ONE! Walnuts are the perfect solution and add a subtle nutty dimension to this flavorful dish.

1 tablespoon olive oil
5-6 leaves fresh basil, to garnish

*Depending on the ripeness of the avocado, use ½ cup water to help smooth your sauce in the blender. I used the Italian seasoning as a garnish because it makes everything taste great.
