like Rachel, I used pesto I had already made and had in the refrigerator. I only added 1/2 tsp. salt. They made a great savory snack and I think they would also be AWESOME chopped and sprinkled on salad. My daughter is making them for my sister for an extra birthday gift.

These were delicious and a huge hit at my family's July 4th get together! A great way to use summertime basil from the garden. I will definitely make again.
