Sun-dried tomatoes and olives enhance this delicious pesto-this pasta salad with basil vinaigrette is a perfect recipe to eat chilled with a soup or garlic bread. Elaborations of a pasta salad are many; you may add slivers of vegetables, a few herb leaves (particularly basil), or other refinements such as sun-drenched tomatoes or olives; dressed with olive oil and lemon juice. So with a little imagination, you can create your own salad recipe!
