Creamy Vegan Pesto

In my last visit to Trader Joe's, I discovered the store carries Kale Gnocchi --vegan ad gluten-free. I snatched a couple of bags. You can find this product in the frozen section next to the Cauliflower Gnocchi. I grabbed a couple of those bags, too. 

I've been ordering my groceries from my local farmer's market. I place the order online, and I pick it up curbside. My fridge sits abundantly filled with herbs, dark leafy greens, root veggies, and fruits. Therefore, lately, I have a lot of dressing recipes and veggie dishes. 

Here's a good one. Batch the dressing in advance. It tastes better the next day. 
I'm also offering substitutions for some ingredients.
