Ready to upgrade your dips, sandwiches, and wraps? Pesto mayo whips up in less than 5 minutes and you only need two ingredients! I prefer to use jarred pesto to make this extra easy, but if you’ve got homemade pesto on hand you could use that too!
When you want an elevated dip for fries, this pesto mayo is the perfect thing to serve! It’s loaded with garlicky flavor, but subtle enough that it compliments the dish without taking over.
It’s also a perfect swap for regular mayo on a sandwich. For me, a sandwich or wrap needs a sauce or spread to enhance the flavors and prevent it from being dry. That’s where pesto mayo steps in to save the day and be the perfect condiment for your lunch or dinner!
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.
