  1. Great recipe! I used this as basis for grilled chicken and veggies “dressing/sauce” and had to adjust with a teaspoon of sugar to balance flavors. Am happy to use up basil pesto and sour cream with this recipe. thanks for posting!

  2. I just saw Lidia Bastianich on TV make dip with 1 can of cannalinni beans drained, (rinsed well ) and basil pesto to taste pulsed in. She commented to add a drizzle of oil IF needed to smooth out for a thinner/ smoother dip IFso desired. she served it with a veggie tray. Great way to add protein & Fiber.
