Tomato, Feta, Olives and ... Pesto???

This was a stupid simple idea that seems a little ... odd - I mean, pesto and feta?

But believe me, it worked. It's not that odd. Basil is close to oregano. Oregano goes with feta and olives and tomatoes.

Basil and feta may not be the first thing you think of, but it works amazingly well.

The pesto was a home made version, no measurements. I got a whole bunch of basil at the farmer's market and blended it up with a little bit of fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and almond butter for the nutty element. Damn, but it was good.

I could have this for lunch, no problem. And it's so pretty!
