I just came across this beautiful recipe for Clevland Sage Pesto created by Antonio Sanchez using local, native salvia for an aromatic pesto! I will most certainly be trying this recipe out soon and reporting back!
Since Salvia Clevlandii is a beautiful flowering shrub that also attracts pollinators to the garden, I often choose to use it in my drought tolerant and native landscape designs. I am thrilled that in addition to those plant benefits, I can now add it to my list of culinary plants!
Have you tried this recipe or have a great native plant recipe? If so, please share!
