    Pianolady's Note:

    This is a very different salad, with a beautiful presentation. We thought it was delicious and wanted to share it with you. It even keeps well. The recipe comes from Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa.

      I will make this again! This was one of the freshest tasting salads I've made. Great for a dinner party also.

      This is everything it's cracked up to be: gorgeous, delicious, unusual, simple; and it begs to be repeated. This one deserves more than five stars.

      I'm kicking myself for not getting a photo of this. I saw Ina prepare this on her show and knew I would love the recipe. It really is terribly easy and so much better than just a pasta-pesto or pea-salad on their own. I'm sure I added more nuts than required too. Will definitely make again and again.
