Fresh Pesto and Tomato Salad

Fresh Pesto and Tomato Salad created by januarybride

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 - http://weekendcarnivore.com . For the pesto, I used Kittencal's recipe #144195 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.

    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.

    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 Recipe #144195 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.

    This is an amazing recipe. For something soooo simple it drew gasps of delight from our guests. Freshly made pesto using Recipe #144195 with lightly toasted pinenuts sprinkled on tops, it looked good and tasted explosively awesome : ))) Thanks Sarah Jayne for a recipe we will use over and over and over.
