    2       c            Firmly packed mint leaves
    1       tb           Chopped nuts
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1       sm           Clove garlic, minced
                         Olive oil
    3       tb           Grated Parmesan cheese
 
   Toss the fresh mint leaves into a food processor or blender along with the
   salt, garlic and nuts.  (Pine nuts are good; walnuts are okay also.)
   
   Start the food processor and then slowly add olive oil.  Don't process too
   long or add too much oil; aim for a consistency that can be spread with a
   knife.  When done processing, remove it to a dish and stir in the cheese.
   
   This is great spread across the top of broiled salmon or halibut fillets.
   You can also toss it with pasta as a simple side dish, or add broiled or
   steamed slices of chicken, seafood, or vegetables to make a main dish.
