Without really intending to, it turned out that we ended up making very Italian inspired food today. Originally, our plan was just to make a simple pesto, but while at the supermarket, we ended up buying a wee bit of sun-dried tomatoes, material for the pesto and this amazing salad I first had at a ex-classmate's house party years ago.
The salad is very simple to make, but tastes incredibly fresh and is perfect for spring/summer weather. No doubt we'll be making this again.
