PREVIOUS: Herbed Avocado Spread NEXT: Simple Tomato Cucumber and Eggplant Salad

Ingredients (1)

  • 3/4 cup sundried tomatoes packed in oil chopped, 2 - 6 oz cans tomato paste, 1/4 cup oil from the sundried tomatoes and any additional olive oil to make 1/4 cup, 2 tablespoons fresh basil, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, salt just a pinch and I like a pinch of sugar maybe 1/2 teaspoon

This is an all time favorite!

Sandwich spread, for grilled or baked meats, fish or poultry and pork, on baguettes or grilled breads or as an appetizer with a basil pesto cream cheese. Use this to top zucchini grilled, eggplant, onion slices. Endless combinations.

I serve this often with my basil pesto cream cheese. Now make your own pesto, but when in a hurry I use a block of cream cheese softened and add a few spoons of store bought pesto to I like the flavor. It is a great easy combo.


  1. 1Just put all in a food processor and puree until smooth. Let chill covered in the refrigerator.
