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
