Directions:

Place all items in food processor for a creamy thicker dressing. If you prefer a more runny dressing simply give all herbs/pistachios/onion a good chop and whisk all ingredients together. Once you have chopped your basil, tomatoes and cheese simply add about two tablespoons of dressing and mix thoroughly.
