This plate looks wonderful and tastes heavenly. It's very easy and you can prepare this in advance. The dressing is mixed up like a pesto . You can use this dressing as well as a marinade for grilled chicken breasts and served them with grilled corn and a simple green salad. Shrimp or a good firm fish will also work well, just reduce the marinading time to about 30 minutes or so. The marinade adds a lot of flavor to light and easy meals for busy, hot summer days.
