Fall in love with fresh Basil Mint Pesto, with its bright, refreshing complexity of flavors, its versatility, and the quick and easy process of making it! Spread it on sandwiches, toss it with pasta, use it as a base for flatbread pizzas, or serve it with a cheeseboard. There are endless ways to use this vibrant sauce!
Optional: Toast the walnuts. Layer the walnuts in a small skillet over low to medium heat. Toast walnuts for 3-5 minutes, just until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them, or they'll be no good.
In a food processor, add basil, mint, garlic, parmesan, and walnuts. Pulse several times until a finely chopped mixture forms.
While the food processor is running, begin drizzling in the olive oil until the sauce is fully combined. Add additional olive oil if needed for desired consistency. Taste test for preferred salt level, adding more as needed.
Pesto is ready to use immediately, otherwise, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You may want to cover with a thin layer of olive oil or plastic wrap to prevent oxidation.
