Pesto Mayo

Pesto Mayo

I have and always will be a sauce girl. I just like a little extra something to get me excited about my meal. 

This is one of those sauces you could use on just about anything -- spread on a sandwich, stir into roasted veggies, douse on a wrap, or use it as a dip for crudite. 

It is incredibly fresh and earthy, creamy and divine. Every bite makes you feel like you are doing something good for your body... even if you are dipping a fried wing into it. 

Save this recipe as a nice little addition for your next dinner party and enjoy!
