    Cookgirl's Note:

    I rearranged the furniture in this recipe. Original Basilico Salad has rice or pasta instead of cauliflower, but since this was taken from a carb-counting cookbook, it all makes sense now. From 500 Low Carb Recipes' cookbook which I just realized belongs to Mom and I borrowed the copy last summer. Perhaps I'll prepare this salad for Mom as a peace offering. Once romanesco and broccoflower become available at the farmers' market, there are major plans in the works to try them in this recipe.

      this is a tasty and colorful salad! the flavors blend well together. i did change the dressing a bit in that i didn't add the evoo (the pesto already had enough for us) and added more of the vinegar. that worked just fine for me! i will be making this again for summer meals.
