Sage Pesto
This makes an excellent veggie dip, or toss with cubed turkey and green
onions for a salad. It's delicious with salmon too.

1/2 cup high-quality olive oil*
1/4 cup garlic, chopped
1/2 cup FRESH sage, firmly packed
1/2 cup FRESH parsley
1 cup pine nuts
1 teaspoon salt
juice of 1 lemon

ingredients in a food processor until a pasty, pesto-like consistency is

*When selecting an olive oil, buy only an extra-virgin oil packed in a non-
clear glass bottle. Good olive oil should have a nice flavor and olive
aroma, taste it as you would wine, it should not taste metallic nor coat
the tongue.
