Coconut Basil Pesto

2 cup organic basil leaves (chopped)
1/4-1/3 organic olive oil (to taste)
1/4 cup dried organic coconut (available in the bulk section at the co-op or Whole Foods)
5 walnut halves
2 cloves garlic
1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
You can also use mint or cilantro instead of the basil–any of the three produce a delicious pesto.

Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until it is a desired consistency (you can puree entirely or leave it a little chunky). (Also, if you find that you pureed too much, just add some finely chopped basil).
