Move over mayo! Sometimes the simplest recipes deliver the greatest flavor burst. That is true for this sandwich spread. It combines Mediterranean flavors like sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and basil into a taste treat that will make everyone forget about ever using mayonnaise again.

I used this spread on focaccia with grilled veggies, but it would be equally good on ciabatta rolls with tuna and spinach, or perhaps with a BLT. Best of all, it’s easy to prepare.
