"I have made this twice in the past week! Very good, easy recipe and makes a great presentation! Made for Think Pink 2112."
"This was incredible! I've tried to find a recipe with zucchini that my 4 & 6 year old boys will eat and enjoy. This recipe sounded wonderful, and I had pesto on hand, and grape tomatoes galore from my garden, so I decided to try it. It was a raging success. Both boys asked for 2nd's and 3rd's = Major success!!!! Added bonus was the easiness of preparation and no cooking needed! I agree with other posts about how gorgeous and colorful it is too! Will be a family favorite for sure!"
"A perfect combinations of flavors. And colors! This is a gorgeous salad. And insanely tasty. Thanks!"
"Yum! Great combination of flavors, and super-quick to toss together! Gets even better the longer it sits, too. Thanks for posting, sweetie :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 Family Picks"
"We loved this!! Funny thing though... trying to make too many things at once, phone rang and I put it in the fridge... We were almost done eating it (hoovering it) and realized... I forgot the feta! Sprinkled it in the last few bites, and it was amazing! Made for ZWT #6!"
"Delicious and simple dish! It was a wonderful preparation for the zucchini. The pesto dressing was a lovely touch. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6"
"A lovely, tasty and colorful side dish - we all really enjoyed this one!! I used golden grape tomatoes but stuck to the recipe (ok, didn't wait an entire hour...). YUM! Thanks for posting a FAB way for Mommy to find more time to enjoy her vodka (summer heat or not!)**Made for ZWT4**"
"Made this for my very first photo experience, but used a borrowed camera from a neighbor, & now I just have to find out hot to post the photo to the recipe! Meantime, so that you know ~ I used a pesto with basil, AND a feta cheese with basil & tomato! This all came together so easily for a beautiful salad that TASTED GREAT! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed for a cooking/photo challenge while touring Greece on Zaar's World Tour 4]"
"This was great! The pesto dressing was positively fab! I did add a little dried oregano as we love it in our tomato salads. This is a keeper."
"What a great tasting salad. I loved everything about it. Really liked the pesto combination. Thanks so much for sharing this. I made as directed except sliced my tomatoes. Made for ZWT4"
"Wonderful dish for a hot summer day. Thanks so much for posting, Potsie! :)"
"Yummo! I too halved my tomatoes. Used tomato-basil feta. Very pretty, verry tasty. Will make again!"
"Wonderful. Easy. Perfect for summer. Thank you Potsie! "
"Really delicious flavors. I scored the zucchini and then sliced it on the mandoline and halved the slices and I halved the grape tomatoes and tossed them together rather than spreading out the slices of zucchini on a platter. I wish I had a camera--such a pretty dish. Thanks, PotScrubber!"
