Lemon Balm Pesto


  • ½ cup lemon balm

  • ½ cup parsley

  • 1.5 cups basil

  • Juice from 1 lemon

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • Salt to taste


  1. Grind the herbs in a food processor or mortar and pestle. If you don’t have either of these, finely chop .

  2. Add the lemon juice and garlic.

  3. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the food processor, or if doing by hand, whisk it in.

  4. Salt to taste.

This is a wonderful addition to fish or served on spaghetti. I dollop mine on fresh fried cod or baked salmon. Wonderful for a beautiful western Newfoundland summer evening!
