Delicious!!!! The only thing I changed (for simplification) was to throw everything including the basil into the cuisinart to blend it all together. I then substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil as I think olive oil and basil are meant to be together. But the flavours are outstanding together. Try this tonight, you won't be disappointed!

I searched for recipes using basil because I have a bumper crop. I loved this dressing so much I'd make it even if I had to buy the is very tasty. I served it with chicken and pasta with this sauce, which is delicious "Recipe #14784". I love summer foods!!

We loved this! The dressing has a bit of heat and a richness of flavor that is just great. Will make this again and again. May make the dressing for other uses, as well. Thank you for posting this.
