    Kathy228's Note:

    My version of island pesto. This tastes great on grilled shrimp, as a sandwich spread. Use it like chutney, pesto, a dip, or a spread.

      This is different, and very good! I think I would like a bit more lime juice, next time. Although this was nice on some grilled chicken, I had leftovers, and I made it into a pretty tasty spread by adding some cream cheese and crushed pineapple.

      What an amazing and very unique recipe - we ALL loved this! I made half the quantities and used this to go with spicy grilled pork chops - Caribbean style - it was like a Sambal or Salsa accompaniment, and next time I have been instructed to make the FULL amount! I made NO subs, apart from the quantity. Thanks Kathy for this lovely recipe! FT:-) P.S. NO photos this time, as yours were so lovely....I would like to photograph this next time I make it, with my pork chops!
