Serves: 1 jar
  • 1 bunch fresh basil (about half a cup firmly packed leaves)
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • extra virgin olive oil
  1. Place the basil, mint, lemon zest and salt onto a chopping board and, using a mezzaluna, chop and mix it until it resembles a paste.
  2. Transfer to a jar and pour in enough extra virgin olive oil to cover.
  3. Alternatively, use a food processor or an immersion blender, but the process won't be as meditative.
