Despite my allergy to dairy and nuts, I am a huge pesto lover! Making dairy-free, nut-free pesto is so easy and really delicious. I use shelled pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts to achieve the right texture and flavor. What I enjoy most about this recipe is how bright and light it is. The flavors of the lemon juice and olive oil really shine through, as does the earthiness of the whole wheat pasta.

1 1/2 cups whole basil leaves
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup avocado flesh
1/3 cup + 1 tsp olive oil
2 servings cooked whole wheat linguine
1 bell pepper (or half each of two colours of bell pepper, like I used)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the pepper into chunks and toss with about 1 tsp of olive oil. Spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and season with salt. Roast at 400F for about 15 - 20 minutes.
Add the basil, lemon juice, pepitas, avocado, and olive oil to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
Once the peppers are cooked, slice them into strips. Toss the peppers, cooked linguine, and pesto so that everything is well combined.
This recipe looks and tastes like a bite of sunshine! I think it works really well for lunch or for a brunch treat. The pulpy, sweet heirloom tomatoes have just enough acidity to balance the dill and salmon, while the lettuce makes a perfect neutral, and gluten-free, vehicle for all those flavors.

Alternatives: Boston lettuce also works really well in this recipe
2 large leaves of romaine lettuce, washed and pat dry
4 slices smoked salmon (I use Coho salmon)
1/2 cup diced assorted heirloom tomatoes
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp capers
2 tsp chopped fresh dill
sea salt and pepper to taste
Toss the heirloom tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil, capers, and dill in a small bowl. Season with salt to taste.
Gently lay 2 slices of smoked salmon into each lettuce leaf. Spoon a good helping of tomato salad on top of each one.
Serve immediately while nice and cold.
