July 11, 2016

-2 Handfuls of fresh basil

-1-2 cloves of garlic

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-4 Tablespoons of olive oil

-4 Tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon

-2 Tablespoons of water

-1-2 Tablespoons coconut aminos (you could substitute with honey), optional

-2 Tablespoons of whole, plain yogurt, optional

Throw everything in the blender & viola!

I’ve been trying to incorporate more herbs into our food. This is a nice dressing for a summer salad and the basil isn’t too overpowering. If you really like savory, leave out the coconut aminos/honey. If you like your dressing creamy, use the yogurt. It tastes great with or without the yogurt. I didn’t measure everything exactly, so, you might want to play with the amounts.
