A zesty twist to traditional pesto - This is an a great sauce to slather over a filet of salmon before baking, or to use for topping seafood with after cooking, tossing with pasta or rice, or pouring over steamed vegetables. It keeps its vivid green color, unlike basil pesto which tends to turn brownish.
