Update 3/2016: I made this recently with half the amount of basil called for (I used 1 cup) and 3 cloves of garlic instead of 4, and I added a few mint leaves as well. I also added a few TBS of water because I wanted it a little more saucy. Additionally, I used walnuts instead of pine nuts, simply because I was out. Delicious!! I actually preferred it to the original recipe. This pesto would be an excellent dressing – just add water to desired thickness!
