Serve this simple, verdant sauce at room temperature over pasta or spread on toasted bread for a quick and easy appetizer.
In a blender or food processor, combine half of the basil with all the other ingredients. Use a low speed and stop often to stir. Blend until smooth, gradually adding the remaining basil.
If using a mortar and pestle, first mash the garlic and salt, then add nuts and continue mashing. Add basil with a little olive oil and mash until a smooth paste is formed. Continue adding olive oil and mix to incorporate.
Taste and season as needed.
