How long does pesto keep?

poptart | Dec 29, 2008 07:56 AM

I want to make a batch of pesto to use for a dinner on Saturday. If I were to make the pesto tomorrow night (tuesday) will it safely keep in the fridge till then? I would leave the cheese out, and just use garlic, nuts, basil oil, salt....
Or is it a better bet to freeze? If it were 2 days to keep in the fridge I'd feel "safe" but I have never kept pesto for 4 days before and feel a bit clueless. Thanks!
