If you are on a low sodium diet, then this is not for you. Because of the high salt content in the green olives, I suggest to add in salt in the end of processing. Serve this with pasta or spread on crackers. If you are serving this on pasta then thin out the pesto slightly with the pasta liquid, there is enough pesto for 1 pound of pasta. I strongly suggest to triple this recipe, and then freeze in containers..... you will love this! Plan ahead the pesto needs to chill for a minimum of 4 hours to intensify flavors. All ingredients can be adjusted slightly to taste.
