    ~jus~'s Note:

    This is a recipe from Christine Manfield. Pesto with an Asian twist. The ingredients should be available from Asian food stores/markets. It is important to use Vietnamese mint, not ordinary mint, as the flavour is quite different.

      This was excellent. I used the basil and mint that was for sale in the asian grocery so I assumed it was holy basil and vietnamese mint. The flavours really worked well. I served it with grilled tuna steaks - yum!
