Tasty store-bought refrigerated pesto offers basil, Parmesan, garlic, and olive oil in one handy ingredient and little goes a long way in this dip. Use what’s left container tossed to elevate the flavor other dishes later in the week like roasted vegetables, homemade salad dressings, and cooked chicken, fish or pork. Or plan to double or even triple this recipe to reserve for a quick snack later in the week or to use as part of a veggie platter to feed a crowd. We’ve recommended serving this snack with crisp snow peas but carrot sticks, cucumber slices, or grape tomatoes would make excellent dippers too.
