The Pea and Mint Pesto (minus the cream) is delicious used in the following ways. Just simply: Stir through mayonise and use as a dressing for a potato salad. Toss pesto through boiled gourmet potatoes just before serving. Serve the pea and mint pesto with roast lamb or grilled lamb chops. Replace the mint with parsley to make a pea and parsley pesto.
