DIRECTIONS

  • Place all ingredients *except* for the sesame seeds in blender or food processor. Blend using the PULSE setting until the mixture is smooth and to the consistency of pesto (if you want a "chunkier" texture-go for it).
  • Place in container, cover and chill.
  • Best prepared several hours in advance. Serve at room temperature.
  • Before serving, stir the sesame seeds into the salsa.
  • Yield is usually a scant 2 cups.
