1 ½ cups loosely packed fresh basil leaves, no stems
¼ cup loosely packed mint leaves, no stems
¼ cup fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
¼ cup raw almonds, walnuts, or pecans
4 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
4-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Put the basil, mint, parsley, garlic, lemon juice,
and nuts into a food processor or blender. Blend
at low speed for a few seconds until the
ingredients are coarsely chopped. Add the
cheese and half of the olive oil and blend again.
Scrape the mixture down from the side of the
container. Turn the speed to low and trickle in
the remaining olive oil while blending. By hand,
stir in salt and pepper to taste.
Pairs well with fresh grilled fish or chicken!
