I agree with cheryl, seems like an awful lot of olive oil.

I think it is too much olive oil...

can't wait to try it sounds soooooo good thanks NYJoan

Make extra, freeze in ice cube trays, dump in a freezer bag, then pull out a few cubes as needed.

I love pesto and make it often. Mix with mayonnaise for a potato salad dressing. I also make it with baby spinach instead of basil. GOOD!!!

I like your idea doing it in spinach. The potato dressing is a good idea to. Thank's
