This basil vinaigrette brings fresh flavor to everything it touches! Dressing is an ideal way to use this herb: drizzle on seafood or tomato salads.
- 1 small garlic clove
- 1 cup packed basil leaves
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- Peel the garlic clove and place it in a food processor*: process until roughly chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and process until the basil is finely chopped and it comes together into a vinaigrette. Store leftovers refrigerated: bring to room temperature before serving.
*You can also use a blender. In a standard sized blender, it’s easiest to double the recipe and make 1 cup dressing. You can use the recipe as is with an immersion blender.
