Almond Mint Pesto

Almond Mint Pesto

Since Bob loved the mint pesto so much, I thought I’d experiment with some other recipes and give him a variety so here is mint pesto #2.  This one comes from Good Housekeeping.

2 cups mint

2 tablespoons roasted salted almonds

1 clove garlic

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1  In food processor or blender, pulse all ingredients except olive oil until coarsely chopped.

2  With food processor or blender running, add olive oil and puree until coarsely ground.
