In the food processor, pulse all ingredients except for oil. Once the greens are chopped into bits, turn on processor and begin to slowly pour in olive oil (in a very slow trickle) until the pesto reaches your desired consistency.

I often put this into an ice cube tray and freeze, pop out pesto cubes and store in freezer bags. Makes a great addition to soups, pastas, etc.
