Unusual salsa that is great served over pasta. Also good with green salad or spread on slices of French bread. Pine nuts are best roasted single layer in pan. Preheat 300 degree F. oven. Roast 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Careful, cuz they burn easily. Minced anchovy fillets may be added (to taste) if you like the zip these critters give to a recipe.
