We have all had pesto before, but have you ever tried adding split peas to it? It adds a wonderful flavor as well as a boost of protein. This Green Split Pea Pesto Pasta Salad is a must make! It starts with these beautiful split peas.
This is perfect for summer cookouts and parties. The tomatoes also add some nice color and pair well with the mildly sweet flavor of the peas. Most recipes for split peas are soups, but I wanted to utilize them in a different way. They were perfect in this pesto.
