  • I didn't give the recipe a rating b/c I altered it a ton. But as far a base for my own recipe, it's awesome!
    I dislike olive oil, so I didn't use it. I used olive juice instead. I added salt to taste & used 1T chopped green olives, and walnuts. I loved it, but I often dislike pesto, just FYI. - 5/23/13

  • Way too salty, even without the Kalamata olive spread! - 9/13/12

  • Terrific! I didn't have Kalamata olives or spread, so I added a tablespoon of Boscoli Italian Olive Salad. I also added the juice from a Key lime and cut the water in half. Absolutely over the top! Thanks for sharing. - 8/24/09
