— Becky’s Tips:
- Use high-quality bacon for the best flavor and texture.
- If you want to make this recipe even healthier, you can use turkey bacon or veggie bacon instead.
- Don’t skimp on the avocado! It adds a creamy, rich flavor that pairs perfectly with the other ingredients.
- You can make the pesto mayo ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
- If you don’t have basil pesto, you can substitute with sun-dried tomato pesto, or make your own pesto using fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese.
