When it comes to taste, Trader Joe’s Vegan Pesto certainly delivers.  The combination of kale, cashews, basil, and garlic creates a flavorful base that pairs well with many dishes.  The cashew butter gives the pesto an extra bit of richness without being overwhelming.  And the hint of lemon juice adds a bright note that helps bring all the flavors together.
