Paleo Pesto from Melissa Joulwan's Well Fed

Every once in a while I come across a recipe I want to make, but it requires a whole other prepared food as an ingredient.  Pesto is a common example of a recipe within a recipe.  I've not found a good store bought paleo pesto, so I decided it was high time to make some paleo pesto.  As with most basic recipes, I turn to Melissa Joulwan first as she tends to have really good recipes for the basics we all look for.  After a quick Internet search, I found her Paleo Pesto.

Here are the main ingredients.

Slow Baked Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes by Martha Stewart

Recipes that cook a protein and vegetable at the same time always appeal to me.  Even if the cooking time is a little longer than what I'd typically call a weeknight recipe, I feel like I'm getting more bang for my buck kitchen time wise.  Enter Martha Stewart's Slow Baked Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes.  I just realized I've cooked more than a few Martha Stewart recipes.  Why?  Honestly, I've don't most of my recipe searching in my facebook feed and her's have looked most appealing to me.  I really don't have many of the big paleo bloggers/cookbook writers in my feed anymore as I grew tired of endless "paleo" treats being posted.  I'm sure they grab the likes and shares, but not what I want to see.

I gathered my ingredients and got to work!
