Creamy Pesto Dressing
There isn’t a picnic in the park, snack by the water or lazy late-night meal that won’t be made more delicious by this dressing/dip/sauce. We started with homemade pesto (you’ll have an extra ½ cup) for maximum summer freshness, but don’t sweat using store-bought if you’d rather.
