Fruit Salad + Pesto Potatoes

I'm in total fruit-loving mode right now. I'm pretty much always in fruit-loving mode, actually, but I have an enormous amount of fruit in my fridge right now that's kicking me into overdrive. This has been my lunch for the last week, pretty much. Big bowls of fruit - in this case watermelon, cantaloupe, fresh pineapple, a nectarine, and of course cherries. Yum. Again, not something that really requires a picture, but fruit is just so pretty that I couldn't resist.

I've been craving pesto lately, so while thinking about what to make for dinner tonight I put that craving together with the little potatoes I bought a few days ago and came up with this: un-dried tomato pesto on steamed new potatoes. It's really good. Especially considering that I just made it up as I went along. Luckily the farmer's market was open today, so I was able to walk down and get basil this morning. The rest of the meal was sauteed tempeh and corn on the cob.

Today's dinner picture came out a lot better than yesterday's cobbler, except for that giant blown highlight in the background. Taking food photos in front of a window, while infinitely better than the yellow indoor lighting I usually use, has disadvantages all its own. Alas.

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

1/4 c sun-dried tomatoes (mine are NOT oil-packed)
1/4 c packed fresh basil
2 Tbsp pine nuts, toasted
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp water
1/4 tsp salt
pepper to taste

Dump all of the ingredients into a food processor (or blender, I suppose) and whizz until it's thick and pasty. If you want to use it as a pasta sauce, thin it out with some more water. Or oil, if you want to be all all crazy like that.

This makes about 6 Tbsp of pesto, which was plenty for 2 servings of potatoes. It would probably be enough for 2 servings of pasta as well, once you thin it out. I'll put that to the test sometime soon and report back.

Fruit is pretty - makes great food porn. You've made me so jealous, as it's winter here in Aus and all those beautiful fruits are not in season :-(

I'm sorry! But don't worry, in 6 months I'll be freezing my butt off with nothing but pears and oranges to comfort me, while you're rolling in produce half a world away. :)

I hear ya - I've been eating so much fruit lately too. Especially berries. Get-em while it's hot!

I love berries, but they're usually too pricey for me. Plus I want blackberries, which no one has. It's a little disappointing. For me summer is all about the melons.

Could your food look any better? I am just starting to get a good feel for the fruit this summer, soon to be in fruit-fanaticism...

I adore cutie new potatoes. The whole dish looks savory and smashing. Loving the food of late on your blog, but so what else is new? Nice going!

Aww, thanks! Fruit fanaticism is my favorite kind. :) Seirously, I could live on fruit. In the summer I almost do. I love new potatoes as well - they're adorable.
