A great way to use pesto besides just serving it on pasta! How boring does that get, right? This pesto egg salad can be made spicy by adding a splash of hot sauce. It’s also amazing with finely chopped giardiniera (mixed vegetables). Serve on crackers, cocktail rye, or use to top a summer salad.
Mix together boiled eggs and half of the mayonnaise. Set aside.
Blend garlic, basil, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, olive oil, salt, and pepper together until smooth in a blender. Combine 2 tablespoons of this pesto mixture, eggs, and remaining mayonnaise together; mix well to desired consistency.
Top with green onions, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
