If you like pesto and tapenade, you'll adore this basil-and-pistachio sauce with chunks of black olive.



  1. Put the pistachios in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add the basil, garlic, red pepper flakes and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pulse until finely chopped. Add the Parmesan and pulse to combine. With the motor running, slowly pour in the oil and process until combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the olives.
