    Can't ya just feel the spark love here.
    I suggest re-reading the "Rate this Recipe".
    Heating salad is not that uncommon it's just different.
    The fats from the olive oil, pine nuts in the pesto are good fats and occasional use dosen't necessarily detract from my program...Chef Jim - 5/2/10

    I tried it and liked it. I make a delicious grilled caesar salad so the nuked lettuce didn't bother me. Next time I will wilt the lettuce in the pan. - 5/2/10

    It is all in what you are willing to try--having grown up with wilted lettuce and other greens, this didn't seem a stretch for me. I served it to my picky eater as a child daughter and she loved it. She gave it the stars, I'd already eaten my day's allotment, but you can bet that I will in the am! - 5/2/10

    I'm only sorry that I waited 36 years to try pesto! A very little bit goes a long way, so I may only start with a little bit, and not the full amount. And warm lettuce? Have you all had a warm taco salad? There ya go! Don't knock it -- and rate it -- UNTIL YOU'VE tried it! - 5/2/10
