This pesto is a classic combination of herb, cheese and nuts, but the addition of a few tablespoons of capers adds a brininess that complements the grassiness of the parsley and the umami of the walnuts and Parmesan. Instead of tossing it with pasta, also try spreading it onto sandwiches or offer it as a sauce for a seared or grilled steak. The pesto can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
