Move over regular old mayo, pesto mayo is here to upgrade sandwiches and wraps! A quick and easy mayo spread, just mix you’re favorite mayo with pesto and create this robust and creamy pesto mayo.
Sometimes a sandwich just needs a little something extra in the flavor department. I like mayo, but it really doesn’t add much in terms of flavor.
That’s where a recipe like this pesto mayo comes in handy. Nothing complicated, but it adds a robust bite that enhances your wrap or sandwich.
Another thing that makes this recipe super fast and easy? You use jarred pesto, so no need to blend up your own pesto.
Of course, if you love making pesto and have the time and ingredients on hand, by all means go ahead and make homemade pesto! But if you’re like me, and really like to use cooking shortcuts where you can, then use a jarred pesto.

Here I used it on a basic lunch sandwich, but it really helped to make it extra special and flavorful! I’ve got some chicken breast, lettuce, crispy bacon, tomatoes, Swiss cheese, and a nice generous smear of pesto mayo.
