Basil/Mint Pesto

Here's a little different take on the normal pesto. For this you'll need to have some mint as well as basil and almonds rather than the traditional pine nuts.

1 cup basil leaves
1 cup mint leaves
2 garlic cloves
Juice from a half lemon as well as the zest
1/4 cup chopped toasted almonds
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
6 T olive oil

Put the first 6 ingredients in a processor and blend well, then add the olive oil slowly until you get the consistency you want. I added even a little more olive oil cause I wanted to use this as a sauce that I drizzled over room temperature roasted chicken slices.
