Kalena’s Pesto



  • 1 cup cilantro (or parsley we couldn’t find it today and using cilantro worked amazing)
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup mixed unsalted nuts (mine had hazelnut, peanuts, walnuts, and almonds) lightly toasted in dry skillet for extra flavor
  • 4 pieces of garlic
  • Pepper, red pepper flakes if you like heat, teaspoon tyme, teaspoon oregano.


In food processed blend garlic and mixed nuts,then add spices, blend, add in the cilantro and basil, blend and slowly drizzle in between 1/3-1/2 cup olive oil (I did 1/3 and then added water to reduce the oil) I also added the juice of a lemon for extra fresh flavor.

If you are visiting our website it is probably because you want to or need to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet for a healthier lifestyle. Here at skipthesalt.com, we are label readers. We are constantly looking for nutritious and flavorful foods with the lowest sodium that we can find. We interact, we question, and we compliment and encourage each other. We are always working on converting recipes we come across, whether those passed down for generations or the latest trends, to make low sodium versions. Through this journey we become friends who support each other.

We share because we care! We share pictures of the low sodium meals that we have prepared and if the sodium amount if known, that is posted as well. We share recipes that we have found and have made, noting changes made to make the recipe low sodium. We also give credit to the source where the recipe was found. We also share our own creations, listing the ingredients and sodium values.

Life is complicated enough, eating shouldn’t be! With the help of members of our Facebook group we try to take the hassle out of living a low sodium lifestyle.
