It only takes minutes to chop and mix, and if you grab your teenage daughter to help, it cuts the time in half. 🙂

Mozzarella cheese and avocado are so good together and when you add basil…I’ll just leave it at that! This goes great with just about anything-especially grilled chicken and pork. I also had this with fish and it was wonderful!

I like Basil Pesto. I use a lot of this pesto in dishes regularly. In this dish, I used the whole 8-ounce jar. YOU feel free to use less if desired. Start with 4 ounces and go from there. If you taste it and it needs more– add more. I did. YOU do the same; you are the judge.
