This slightly tangy pesto, served on warm fingerling potatoes, is milder than one made with basil, so the taste of the almonds really shines through. While the F&W Test Kitchen used curly kale for this recipe, it would work well with any variety of kale. Slideshow:  Perfect Pesto Recipes

  • Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the kale with the almonds, lemon juice and garlic and pulse until the kale and nuts are very finely chopped. With the machine on, drizzle in the olive oil and process until incorporated. Season the pesto with salt and pepper.

  • In a large bowl, toss the warm fingerlings with the pesto and serve.
