Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, pulse to chop, then process until well blended.

Step 2

Add the olive oil gradually through feeder tube.

Step 3

Taste to decide if you want more cheese, lemon juice, or more olive oil or salt.

Step 4

If not using this all at once, it can be frozen in these ways: scoop it onto a wax paper-lined tray and freeze for a couple of hours, then transfer to a labeled bag for storage. Or fill ice cube tray full, when frozen, pop into zip-lock freezer bag. Or put about 1/4 cup in small zip-lock bag, flatten the bag and freeze so you can easily break off how much you need if you don't want to use the whole amount.
