This simple vegetarian dish began with the idea of a deconstructed pesto: Sliced tomatoes, crisp-tender wax beans and baby arugula take on new meaning when drizzled with excellent olive oil gently infused with young garlic and topped with slivered sweet basil and roasted pine nuts. This pairs well with the Grilled Chicken with Ruby Plum Compote.
