This was a good mix of pantry staples and fresh salad veg that we always have on hand. It makes a huge mixture and the tablespoon of (my home made basil and tomato) pesto wasn't enough to flavour the dish in my opinion. A big squeeze of lemon juice seemed to lift it amazingly and I recommend it if you try making this.
