Fresh basil makes this dressing! This is one of those salad dressing that you just can't get tired of.
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup fresh basil leaf
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- Add everything except olive oil to a blender and blend while streaming in olive oil.
This is my favorite recipe. I think the blend of lemon and vinegar are just right. I have tried many others...and they just don't work. EXCELLENT! Though come end of summer...I will be without basil...will have to modify
Love this recipe! I'm always looking for new ways to use my basil. A girl can only make pesto so much in the summer before you get tired of it. This dressing is light, refreshing and super yummy! I do agree with the other reviewers that there was too much vinegar for my liking. So the second time I made it I only put in 2Tbsp of Red Wine Vinegar but I kept the 1/4 cup of lemon juice and it was perfect. I have also added a little bit of garlic powder and that also works very nicely with this dressing.
This is so fresh! Love this for salads and even on bread! It's good on anything! Trying it to day on a trisket cracker, tomato, jack cheese with this drizzled over the top. I can't believe I did not review this sooner!
