Nothing can beat fresh homemade Basil Pesto, but this Kirkland Basil Pesto from Costco is pretty great.
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that I love to make my own basil pesto in the summer when fresh basil is abundant, and I think my recipe for Basil Pesto with Lemon can't be beat. But sometimes fresh basil isn't available, and I love recipes with pesto even in the dead of winter. For times like that, I'm a huge fan of this Kirkland Basil Pesto from Costco, a great product that I've been buying for years.
Unlike tiny jars of pesto that you see in the grocery store, Kirkland Basil Pesto comes in a big 22 ounce jar, enough pesto to make any recipe that uses basil pesto. And this pesto keeps a long, long time in the fridge (and like my basil pesto with lemon, it can be frozen.) And just in case you're wondering, Costco has never given me any pesto or paid me to write about it here, but I'm excited to add it to my list of Kalyn's Kitchen Picks!
