I love pesto sauce!  I recently ordered a flatbread at a restaurant and it came with a delicious ranch pesto.  I knew I had to recreate a healthy version!

Cilantro-Lime Ranch Pesto Recipe by Amanda's ApronThis yummy sauce is perfect to drizzle over a flatbread, pizza, quesadillas, or bruschetta.  It is made with Greek yogurt so it has a bit of a tang to it.  For those who don’t love Greek yogurt, consider blending mayonnaise and/or sour cream with the yogurt.
