These petite hors d’Oeuvres are refreshing, flavorful (thanks to the citrus-spiked pesto), and so simple to make. Once you have pesto sauce made, you need only three ingredients. Another variation on this theme is to add some salad greens to create an entrée salad. The pesto sauce, with a little more olive oil added, serves as the salad dressing.
