I used 4c of celery leaves

1/3 cup of whole almonds (not blanched)

2 large garlic cloves

1/3 cup parmigiano reggiano

2/3 cup olive oil( this is a little too much for me)

Lemon juice to taste

Chopped nuts and garlic together, grated the cheese

added to celery leaves and blended, slowly adding olive oil

then stirred in the lemon juice…

Look at the color of this. I hope its as intense on your screen, it is so vibrant  and so is the flavor! More mild and sweeter than basil or garlic space pesto’s. Don’t throw away your greens….you should really try it 🙂
