Traditional basil pesto is a summer flavour, but by using mint it gives the unique and fresh flavour to refresh you on even the hottest of days. 

1 cup (250 mL) fresh mint leaves, lightly packed
½ cup (125 mL) fresh Italian parsley leaves, lightly packed
1/4cup (50 mL) fresh grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup (50 mL) chopped walnuts
2 cloves garlic minced
½ cup (125 mL) extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper


1. In food processor, pulse together mint, parsley, cheese and walnuts until coarsely chopped. Pulse in garlic.

2. With machine running, drizzle in oil until smooth sauce is formed. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Spoon pesto sauce over or toss with ingredient of choice and serve.
