Recipe by KelBel

This is a unique combination of flavors that includes pine nuts, garlic, walnut, raisin, pesto and olive oil. It is sweet, salty, nutty and a little spicy.

I made this a while back and LOVED it! Since I'm not a fan of anchovies, I omitted these. Other than this omission I followed the recipe and was completely satisfied! Thanks KelBel for such a wonderful recipe!!
