Citrus Pesto

Add all of the ingredients, except the Pasolivo Oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, to a food processor and pulse until coarsely mixed. While processing, slowly add the olive oil and vinegar until well blended. You may want to add more oil if the pesto is too thick. Add the salt and pepper to taste. To store in the refrigerator, top the pesto with a thin layer of the Pasolivo Citrus Olive oil.

Makes approximately 3 cups.
