    Marie's Note:

    A wonderful and colorful veggie dish drizzled with a delicious pesto dressing. Can be served immediately or chilled up to 8 hours. Vinaigrette dressing is also great on other salads.

      Perfect summer combination and I've used the dressing for any number of things since enjoying the green beans and tomatoes. Useful and delicious recipe.

      Very tasty and refreshing summer salad, though I did find the white wine vinegar a touch strong for this dish. Next time I will probably use white balsamic or apple cider vinegar. Thank you Marie for sharing the recipe.
