Sweet Basil Dressing Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup of roughly chopped fresh basil leaves
2/3 cup of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons of water
2 teaspoons of unpasteurized or raw honey
3 1/2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, pressed or finely minced
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until creamy. Use immediately or store in an air-tight container for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

We love the aroma of fresh basil and use it whenever it's available. Basil is an excellent source of vitamin C and beta carotene. This versatile sweet basil dressing can be used over steamed vegetables, fish, and baked or mashed potatoes. In the summer, try brushing it on freshly steamed or raw corn on the cob.
