This is a very easy recipe to assemble, and tastes oh so yummy. I have served it as a dressing over a bunch of rocket, as a spread on a BLT; even as a dip for some veggies. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    I love this sauce drizzled over a bunch of rocket, or as a spread for a BLT, or other sandwich. Enjoy.
