Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

This is a quick, easy salad dressing and one of my favorites. Fresh basil will bring spring in your plate and freshness into your kitchen. That’s why I strongly urge you to prepare it with fresh basil leaves and not dry ones. Also, to my opinion, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil of supreme quality are best friends. Don’t waste it on other kinds of oil. Take my word for it. Enjoy !


1 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup honey                                         

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

2 cloves garlic, minced


                           Take your mortar and pestle and whisk together all the ingredients,

                           pressing them, tossing them around,

                           pressing them again until you get a thick, green paste.

                           Pour over your favorite (especially summer) salad and serve.
