  1. In a blender or food processor, start by adding the garlic, brazil nuts, basil and cheese, start blending and slowly add the olive oil until mixture starts to become smooth, add salt and pepper.
  2. Boil water for the potatoes and cook until tender. Allow potatoes to cool before proceeding.
  3. Mix the pesto and mayonnaise together, or leave the mayonnaise out for vegan
  4. Add the cooled potatoes, kale, chard and onion to a large bowl and incorporate the pesto-mayonnaise until everything is well coated. I like to use my hand and mash the potatoes up a bit so that they absorb the most sauce.

      Looks wonderful. Lots of good veggies. I see brazil nuts in the instructions for the pesto but not on the list of ingredients so no amount given. Could you clarify? Thanks.

      Oh gosh, they are on my website but I must have missed them on here, I used 3/4 C brazil nuts in the pesto 🙂
      Thanks Clemma
