Day 103: Mint Pesto with Berries

Yield: 2 servings
Time (Start to Finish): 20 min

1 cup loose mint leaves
¼ cup walnuts
2 oranges, juiced

berries (strawberries, rasberries)

1. In a blender or food processor, mix the mint leaves, orange juice and walnuts. Feel free to add more juice if it is not runny enough. You want to be able to drizzle it.
2. Slice the berries and serve next to the fruit so it can be poured on.

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: This is a perfect little treat! The pesto is super light. Minty and walnuty. I didn’t taste the orange too much, so if you want the flavor to pop, add some of the zest of the oranges. It is great over berries. You will really enjoy this. It is a nice different dish. I had a super long day, and didn’t want to make anything today, but this really took no time at all, so it’s a good thing to impress people with little to no effort. Enjoy!
