Ingredients
  1. 1 cup washed, loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  2. ½ cup fresh sorrel leaves, cilantro, or mint
  3. 2 sun dried tomatoes
  4. 2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled
  5. juice of 1 lemon
  6. ¼ to ½ cup quality, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, as needed
  7. sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine the basil, sorrel, sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor bowl; pulse and process the mixture until it is finely chopped. Slowly add extra virgin olive oil in a steady drizzle, starting with just 1/4 cup, as you pulse the processor on and off. Process until it becomes a smooth, light paste. Add enough olive oil to keep it moist and spreadable. Season with sea salt. Cover tightly and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to saturate the flavors. If storing overnight, pour a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil over the top of the pesto to help keep it bright green.
  2. Note: additional dried tomatoes add a deeper, richer flavor, but you will lose the bright green color.
