Walnut Spinach Pesto

My food processor has been getting a workout lately. I’ve made a different type of Pesto almost every day. I had some frozen spinach that I wanted to use so this batch has walnuts, spinach, and parsley.

1 c fresh Parsley
1/2 c Walnuts, shelled

In food processor, pulse greens, garlic  and nuts with 1Tbsp of olive oil until chopped. Add remaining oil, lemon and lime juice and salt and process on medium for a minute or two. Chill.

I served this with roasted cauliflower. It is also good with meat or served on pita chips.
