In This Recipe


  1. Finely chop the parsley and place it in a bowl with the lemon zest and garlic. Mix in the hazelnuts. Add oil slowly, until it reaches your desired consistency. Stir in the juice of 1/2 a lemon and salt, to taste. If you want the garlic finer, grate it on a rasp-style grater. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
