This dressing is posted in Kelly's Wedding Salad. However, it goes so well with any mixture of vegetables and fruit, that I figured it deserved to have a listing of it's own. I've doubled the ingredients from the original posting. I've been putting this on EVERYTHING! Note: Cooking time is recommended chilling time.
- 2⁄3 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 4 teaspoons fresh basil, finely chopped
- 4 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker container.
- Chill several hours before serving, but is at it's best if made at least 24 hours ahead of time.
Great dressing! I gave this a good 24 hours in the fridge and the flavours came together beautifully. Used some lemon basil I have growing in the garden.
So easy and used ingredients which are usulally on hand in my pantry. I did use dried basil though, as fresh is not yet fully in season, but cant wait to try this with fresh basil. Easy, quick tasty and this dressing really improved the salad I served for dinner. Thanks Fiana, will be making this again and its nice to know the ingredients will be on hand!
So simple and so good - basil fresh from my garden in October. I also like to toss some basil leaves with other salad greens for a double impact. Thank you Diana for posting this wonderful recipe.
