Introduction

Basil Vinaigrette

By: Carole St-Laurent

Basil is so easy to grow in the summer; it tastes divine and super fresh. It’s in the same family as mint, oregano and rosemary. It’s a flavorful antioxidant and anti-inflammory, and it’s liver and blood vessel protector. Go ahead, grow some! 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped basil leaves

This vinaigrette can be used to drizzle on sliced tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, the perfect accompaniment to Caprese salad, or it can be used to marinate chicken or white fish.

Nutrition

Don’t let the % of fat in this recipe fool you: the benefits of olive oil are innumerable. In fact, my doctor calls it the Nectar of the Gods.
