Flavorful and Refreshing
June 2, 2013
I admit I wasn't sure before I made it, but this recipe was fabulous. I used the lesser suggested amount of olive oil, and that worked best for me. I found this a nice break from pure basil pesto, lighter and refreshing.
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again

Great variation on pesto
February 2, 2013
I normally don't like pesto because I think it's too rich, but this is an awesome variation. The lemon really does cut the basil nicely. It's a simple recipe, and it's gone so well with everything I've paired it with. It's my go-to pesto recipe now!
Pros: Quick, Easy, Healthy, Will Make Again
