Fresh Basil Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

I was in my kitchen enjoying the aroma of the fresh basil plant that a friend had given me. I knew that I had to use it in tonight’s meal. I quickly imagined it with greens, and since I love simplicity, I decided on 2 standbys, olive oil and lemon juice. What a wonderful dressing it made. The basil flavor was distinctive, but not overpowering. I simply drizzled it on top of some fresh greens, red peppers and bleu cheese. Perfect!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions
In a blender or food processor, mix together the basil leaves, garlic, salt and pepper. Add lemon juice, then slowly add the olive oil while blending.
