This is a beautiful starter, a great crowd pleaser and easy to put together!
1 green apple, cut into thin slices
1 carrot, julienned
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 cucumber, julienned
1 cup basil leaves
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
Combine oil, walnuts and basil in a food processor to create a pesto. Add salt as needed. Arrange julienned vegetable on sliced apple, add a small dollop of pesto, and roll. Chill to serve.
This dish looks delicious and is easy to assemble. It is fun to prepare with kids. It tastes fresh and yummy, and is perfect finger food for parties and get togethers. I used a kitchen aid attachment to create the apple slices.
