Sweet Basil Vinaigrette


I’ve been making this over the years for all seasons, not just the fall. I absolutely LOVE it during the first hints of spring because of the fresh taste, and I love to eat it with strawberries and avocado. It’s also one of my favorite dressings to make when I am hosting company, or bringing a dish to a social gathering. Everyone always asks for the recipe!! Since it’s the week of enjoying green food for St. Patrick’s day, I thought it would be perfect to share with all of you!

I have adapted it over the years, making this refined sugar-free and using honey as the sweetener. I enjoyed it over the weekend with arugula, strawberries, feta, pecans, and red onion. So many great possibilities with this salad dressing; feel free to dress with anything and you won’t be disappointed! Something else I love is that this recipe will make plenty for you to enjoy salads for an entire week. Its keeps well in the fridge. Enjoy!!
