Frequently Asked Questions:

What is sun-dried tomato and olive pesto?

Sun-dried tomato and olive pesto is not the typical “green sauce” you think of when you hear the word “pesto.” Closer to a “red sauce,” this crushed raw sauce stars sun-dried tomatoes rather than the loads of fresh basil. DeLallo Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil and Olive Pesto is crafted with sweet sun-dried tomatoes, briny black and green olives, capers, extra virgin olive oil, herbs and spices. Classically, homemade pesto is made with a mortar and pestle, but in modern times, home chefs use a food processor. Pesto sauces are no-cook sauces meant to be enjoyed raw. This means that they are ready to stir into hot pasta for a quick-and-easy pasta dinner or use straight from the jar as a gourmet ingredient in a number of everyday recipes.

What is sun-dried tomato and olive pesto made of?

DeLallo Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil and Olive Pesto is made with sweet sun-dried tomatoes, bright and briny olives, fresh basil leaves, capers and extra virgin olive oil.

Is sun-dried tomato and olive pesto the same as olive tapenade?

No, Olive Tapenade is a very single flavor focused sauce made simply with olives, extra virgin olive oil and salt. While both are similar in how they can be used, our Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Pesto includes a handful of ingredients with a more dynamic flavorful profile including sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, capers and garlic.
