Fresh Pesto and Tomato Salad
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.
- Ready In:
- 1 medium tomatoes, sliced fairly thickly
- 1 tablespoon pesto sauce, fresh is best
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pine nuts, toasted
- Lay the tomato slices out on a plate with the ends just overlapping.
- Drizzle the fresh pesto liberally over the tomato slices.
- Scatter with your toasted pine nuts and enjoy.

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 2010.1Reply
