Jump to recipe

[I made this simple basil vinaigrette for my friends at Earth Fare!

Have you ever smelled fresh basil? 

Surely, you have. But in case you need a reminder, it smells AMAZING. It perfumes your whole kitchen with the scent of warm weather and that alone is something to celebrate. 

This simple basil vinaigrette has just 7 ingredients (counting salt and pepper!) and can be made in about 2 minutes. 

It’s so fresh and light and it’s the perfect way to jazz up a salad, roasted veggies, or fish!
