How long can you keep fresh made pesto?

How long can you keep fresh made pesto in the fridge? I noticed it oxidizes a bit in surface, is that a big deal? BTW I made it friday.

it should be good for several days to a week in the fridge , you can always freeze it as well.

Shouldn't be a problem, that happens with basil.

It freezes beautifully! I freeze it in ice cube trays, that way I can pull out however much I want/need really easily!!

 

Not sure how long it keeps in a fridge fresh though... I'd guess a few days:)
