pistachio aillade

I had a great dinner at Lucques is LA the other night -- lamb on a rosemary skewer with cous-cous, roasted nectarine, labne and pistachio aillade. Can anyone tell me how to make pistachio aillade? Thanks in advance.

    Was it a thick, very nutty sauce?

      definitely nutty, although I am not sure I would call it a sauce -- a bit drier than a sauce.

        That sounds like a variation on walnut aillade, then. Substitute pistachios and pistachio oil (hard to find but exists):

      There is a recipe for pistachio aillade in the Zuni cookbook.
