why did the stars turn blue instead of red? i hope it shows 5 stars... anyway, this was fabulous! I declared last night a non cooking night, grilled some steaks, nuked some carrots & made this sauce! Delicious!! I also wish it came out thicker but the flavor was divine. I didn't strain out the scallions, just added them to the blender & whizzed away. yumyum. Made for Aussie Swap 9/12.

Dave made this to go on our lamb chops the other night. It all came together quickly and tasted fantastic. The one small comment he made was he would have liked it thicker. Served with mashed potatoes and peas.

Loved this as a variation on the classic Tarragon sauce, although I did slip a FEW leaves of tarragon in too! I intend to serve it with grilled lamb chops tonight, but for now, it has been made and tested, I slathered a bit on a burger this lunch time!! Very good sauce and good solid instructions. Merci! Made for Recipe Swap #27 - thanks again! FT:-)
