    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    A zesty twist to traditional pesto - This is an a great sauce to slather over a filet of salmon before baking, or to use for topping seafood with after cooking, tossing with pasta or rice, or pouring over steamed vegetables. It keeps its vivid green color, unlike basil pesto which tends to turn brownish.

      First of all, this is super easy to make--which is a big plus in my book! Second, it's versatile because I put some of the pesto over my steamed broccoli and then put the rest of it over tortellini and it was good on both. This pesto is very light and fresh tasting and something that I will make again. Thanks, What's Cooking?!
