This is a yummy, creamy version of standard pesto that makes a great spread for get togethers. Tastes great with pita chips or sourdough bread! Sun dried tomatoes may be mixed in for a zesty tang. Add crunch by coating the finished spread with almonds.

This is soooo good! It's a million times better than what you get in a store. I added some sun dried tomatoes to it and wow! I dipped anything from carrots, celery, crackers, & bread and it was fab. Why haven't more people tried it? Maybe they will now that there's a review. It was so easy by the way, there's no excuse not to make it.

Fantastic and very, very quick and easy. I used fresh parsley because I didn't have cilantro available and it was wonderful. I'll definitely make this again and again.

With basil so prolific in my garden, this was perfect to use the basil pesto I've already made with it. Since the pesto is already so flavorful and green I didn't bother with either the chives or the cilantro. Actually, I know I wouldn't have liked the cilantro in here anyway, as I find the flavors conflicting.
