Oh, we loved this! It has such a unique and delicious taste. Nice balance of flavors. I halved the sesame oil. Served it over rice noodles for two.

what a delicious twist on pesto! i loved the addition of the cashews and lemon. since i am not a big cilantro fan i used more basil but this tasted great over soba noodles. this one's a keeper!
