Summary: I love mint and pistachios, and really, pesto is of the gods. This is great on steak and slathered on bread! I also think it'd be fantastic with grilled peaches! Per reviews on Food52, this is divine on lamb. Lastly, this is just so darn easy- fantastic!
Note: This was the winner of the Your Best Mint contest on Food52
- 1 cup mint leaves
- ⅓ cup roasted, salted, shelled pistachios
- 1 small clove garlic, peeled
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- juice of ¼ lime
Put the mint leaves, pistachios, garlic and salt into a small food processor or into a mortar. Process or crush until coarsely ground. In a steady stream, add the oil and lime juice until the consistency is of your liking. Voila!
