Last night was pesto night and I needed something to share at the office potluck today. Clearly, a simple pesto dip with a baguette was my go-to. Even more fitting, the theme of the potluck was appetizers. After making this for the first time, I can now say it will be one of my summer go-to’s. Basil season is in full swing. Here’s a great way to enjoy it.
