2. over a grilled pita bread or fresh naan they sell at costco. with some mozz. cheese. excellent light /fast meal. be sure to put fresh slice mozz cheese over basil to avoid flying basil.
Not to be a down(er) CB....but we can't do yogurt or cheese; it's that cow's milk allergy thing...gets us sent to the ER. I might just give the "paste" thing a try and make a "rub" for some chicken. We love garlic and salt around here.
