Low-Fat, High-Flavor Dining

A Continental-Style Garden Buffet or a Country Picnic by Lou Seibert Pappas This robust pesto makes a great spread on Italian breads -- focaccia, pizzettes, or toasted crusty loaves.It also uplifts baked fish such as halibut steaks or swordfish.

In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, place the olives, basil, shallots, nuts, and garlic. Process until finely minced. Add the oil and cheese and process until mixed in. Transfer to a small bowl, cover, and chill. Makes about 1¼ cups.
