    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    Sometimes simple and fresh is best! That is for sure the face with this recipe that I put together while creating recipes for my vegetarian food blog - . For the pesto, I used Kittencal's Kittencal's Perfect Pesto which really is great stuff! This is enough for one but can be very easily multiplied.

      I cheated. I took some homemade pesto pasta salad and placed that on the bottom. Then I added some freshly picked beefsteak tomato. A touch of kosher salt and bliss has been born.

      LOVE this salad! I looked outside this morning and decided it was time to get all the leaves off the basil plant so it could start fresh again. . .and luckily stumbled upon this recipe. I took your advice and made Kittencal's Perfect Pesto which was fabulous. I literally didn't even sit down. . .gobbled this right up in about 2 minutes flat. Can't wait to make this again for my husband, as this is a real winner! THANKS for sharing. Made for Veggie Swap July 2010.

      I got some fresh basil and jersey tomatoes from the farmers market today, and I just had to try it, the pesto lover I am. I made the walnut version of the recommended pesto recipe and it worked great. I think it would be nice with an addition of fresh mozzarella. Thank you.
