Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette

adapted from Join Us, Pull Up a Chair

Prep time: 3 minutes


basil (free for me, but probably .50-1.00), oil: 1.00, vinegar: .05

1/3 C balsamic vinegar (or white balsamic or white wine)

1 C olive oil

1 C basil leaves, packed

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp sugar

Note: I made a very small amount of this--I quartered the recipe (did I mention my basil was on its way out). Consequently, I skipped the food processor and just chopped my basil very small and then shook my dressing most vigorously. Worked great if you just want to make a bit. 

Combine all ingredients in food processor and give it a whirl. 

Serve over salad (do I even need to tell you how great this is with tomatoes?). I bet it'd kick butt on chicken or fish too.
