Fresh pesto is SO much better than the store-bought version. And, pesto made with tender pecan halves is the new, popular kid on the block. Though pesto is traditionally made with pine nuts (and those are delicious, too!), you can make a fresh batch at home with a variety of nuts. Due to their high oil content, pecans make an excellent option.
