This creamy pesto mayo is the ideal sauce for sandwiches, burgers, fries and it is a great sauce to elevate a salad.
We tend to make our own pesto because it’s so easy to do so at home and it’s much more flavorful, fresh and rich than store-bought pesto; it’s also extremely quick to make with a food processor. We definitely recommend trying this out, but if you don’t have so much time on your hands, you can always use store-bought pesto. If you’re using store-bought pesto, then add a cup of mayo to each cup of pesto.
