    Used different ingredients. I would suggest adding lime juice and oliver oil instead of mayonnaise.  -  04 Feb 2010


    I had never tried watercress before, nor had I made my own pesto. I really like this pesto a lot. I added lemon to mine after putting it on pasta. This recipe is great! Leftovers for lunch tomorrow  -  13 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have always wanted a different way to make watercress besides potato soup or throwing it in salad. I tried this with pasta and chicken. Very good. Thanks Mandy!  -  06 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
