Similar to the use of a classic basil pesto, this variation can be used as a lovely dip or it can accompany chicken, beef or fish dishes. We personally like it as a flavour bomb in soups and we also use it to personalise rice or pasta dishes. 

Fresh pesto can be kept up to 7 days in the fridge, but you can also freeze it and store up to 6 months.
