PESTO POTATO SALAD
Course: Salads
Serves: 4 to 6
Prep: Moderate

¼ cup pesto
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 to 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 bunch scallions (white and light green parts), sliced

DIRECTIONS

1.
If the potatoes are large, cut into equal chunks about the size of golf balls. Place in a single layer in a microwaveable dish. Cover with waxed paper. Microwave on high for about 10 minutes, rotating occasionally until tender. Remove and set aside for 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
