A delicious salad of cooked shell pasta and soft, succulent paneer cubes dressed in a mixture of walnuts, garlic and basil leaves perked up with lemon juice. Olive oil leaves an indelible mark on this refreshing salad, while walnuts bring in their characteristic saltiness and crunch. You will love the sharp yet soothing notes of basil too.

Walnut pesto was an interesting combination... and a great variation the the classic Pine nut pesto recipe... also the paneer was a great addition.. the flavors were simple yet so aromatic... the freshness of the basil... the nuttiness from the walnuts and the punch from the garlic and olive oil was a great experience.
