Although I was skeptical at first as I prefer pesto made with fresh basil this is really great. I have never tried this on a tossed salad but it is wonderful as a dressing for a pasta salad. Our favourite is tossed with tri-colour rotini and a handful of black olives (the olives really MAKE it). It is so easy and I don't have to worry about finding fresh basil (especially in winter). Thanks for an easy, great recipe.

Good tasting dressing. My family doesn't like pesto, so I didn't ask them to try it; however, I wandered in the kitchen last night and DH was helping himself to some over carrots. I actually have used it as a sandwich topping instead of mayo. THANKS KQ for sharing!
