Chicken Pesto Salad

 Total Time: 53 minutes

Grade: A-

Make Again: Maybe

Recipe Source: Light & Healthy 2010

The pesto in this recipe was very nice.  It was made lighter by skipping the pine nuts and using just a tiny bit of olive oil, and replacing some of that with a light mayo.  It works really well. I actually didn't have half the ingredients I needed on hand (mostly veggies), so my actual salad was very different than intended.  But it was still tasty and I enjoyed the leftovers the next day.

The biggest problem I had was the time it took to make. I like my salads to be quicker. I probably will use the pesto recipe again though. I didn't miss the pine nuts at all, which surprised me.
