"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."

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 o...

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.

Amazing and SIMPLE. I used a little more pesto (probably about 1.5 tablespoons more than the recipe called for) and it was delicious. Takes no time at all, and I also used the 1/3 less fat Phill...

Quick & easy. Although I did not like this, everyone else at the party loved it...even the picky kids. I think next time I'll skip the garlic. Thanks.

It was just okay, I wasn't super impressed with this dip. I made it for a party and it wss not a big hit.

I'm asked to make this dip for every family get together. I use the cheaper powdered pesto and like it much better that way! This is a tasty spread with bagel chips or toasted peta bread
