A delicious creamy topping for chicken or fish. Can be served cold or hot. I personally prefer it cold on top of hot broiled lemon pepper mahi mahi with brown rice and steamed spinach. Garnish dish with cilantro leaves after topping with sauce.

LOVE THIS! I didn't have the artichokes, but I will make sure I have them for next time. I did have a little difficulty blending everything in the blender, but a splash of evoo fixed that issue. I used this to top potato pancakes, and that was wonderful. This has a great, light, fresh flavor that I really, REALLY enjoyed...This is a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Wonderful sauce, but a bit misleading calling it "pesto". As pesto is a sauce made with basil, pine nuts and olive oil.
