Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Pour desired amount of walnuts onto a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes, watching carefully to make sure they don’t get too dark.
  4. Let walnuts cool.
  5. Meanwhile, puree berries, olive oil, and lemon juice in a food processor until runny.

This is a great summer dish! It’s quick and easy to make, and it’s fresh, fruity, nutty, and best of all, healthy!!
