I served this as an appetizer salad, added sliced black olives for a bit more color contrast. Very good and impressive.

All of my favorite ingredients and so quick to put together. We didn't have a red onion so our yellow was a bit on the strong side and my have overpowered the dish but will definitely try again with the red onion. I always have homemade pesto frozen in ice cube trays.

Very nice salad! The lemon juice adds a nice tang. I agree with Missy Wombat that the pesto quality is VERY important.
