Author Notes: I love pesto. I especially love pesto that uses any, and all kinds of greens and herbs! The combinations are truly endless in the wide world of pesto. Here, I chose spinach and chives for a super spring-y pesto to top pasta, veggies, grain salads, options are endless. —Lindsey S. Love | Dolly and Oatmeal
