Place all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the basil is finely processed.
Use immediately, or place the sauce in a glass jar with a lid and store in the fridge.
This sauce will keep in the fridge wonderfully for up to a month. I store it in a glass jar, closed tightly with a lid. When stored in the fridge, the olive oil will solidify - so either leave it out on the kitchen bench to allow it to come to room temporature before you use it next time, or alternatively you can pop the jar without the lid into the microwave and help it along by microwaving at low power (20%) for 15 or 20 seconds.This basil sauce will stay beautifully green, even when stored.Use it generously drizzled over eggs, or anything that could benefit from a little zing of fresh flavour - pizza (after baking and before eating), green salads, cold pasta salads, grilled or roasted meat (especially heavier meats/cuts like steaks, beef and lamb) but also fish. And it would probably even work as a dipping sauce for some delicious freshly baked bread.
