B-L-T-A with pesto mayo

unnamed (1)

Who doesn’t love a good BLT? Especially with avocado & pesto mayo! Just get your ingredients together and build your sandwich: bread of your choice (I used sourdough), bacon, sliced tomatoes, arugula & pesto mayo. For the pesto mayo, I just combined store bought pesto with mayo. Below is a good recipe if you want to make homemade pesto mayo. Is it bad if I dipped the sandwich in the pesto mayo in addition to having it already on the bread? ๐Ÿ˜€

Ingredients:
1 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves (about 2 ounces)
1/3 cup lightly toasted pine nuts
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/4 cup mayonnaise (good quality store bought, or homemade)

Directions:
In the bowl of a food processor or blender, combine the basil, pine nuts, garlic, salt, and pepper and puree, scraping down the sides as needed. With the machine running, add the oil through the feed tube and process until the mixture is thick and smooth. Add the Parmesan and process for 15 seconds.

Transfer to a bowl and add the mayonnaise, stirring to blend well. Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve. (The pesto mayonnaise will keep for 3 days refrigerated.)
