Here is a recipe of a sauce that I created and that it is inspired by the flavors and colors of the pesto sauce. I find it very soothing for my digestion, it is very healthy, and it also tastes real good. I use it a lot for pastas or when I want to give a twist to my salads and vegetables.

2. 1 tablespoon of walnuts
3. ½ teaspoon of Himalayan salt
4. ¼ cup of olive oil

1 t 1 teaspoon of honey or raw sugar to taste
1. Soak walnuts in water overnight. Discard the water the next day.
2. Bring all ingredients to a food processor and blend.
3. Add water if needed for a less viscous consistency.
