Walnut Pesto With Olive Oil

  • One cup extra virgin olive oil
  • One garlic clove
  • Twelve walnuts
  • One quarter cup fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Small handful of basil
  • Small handful of parsley
  • Three sprigs fresh mint
  • Sea salt
  • Ground pepper

Wash all the greens well. Peel the garlic and grind the pepper. Crack the walnut shells and pull out the meat from inside. Put them in a food processor or a pestle and mortar. Mash up the garlic and add to the meat, then sprinkle with sea salt. Start the machine or begin pounding. Continue to add more herbs and continue with the machine or pound again. Using a restaurant grade olive oil cruet, drizzle about one cup of olive oil in the mixture. Keep processing until the mixture is very smooth and looks like a green sauce. Then, season with pepper, salt and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
