Every March 1st, I wake up and think, "I MADE IT!" I know it can snow in March (or April... or MAY!), but to me, March 1st marks the end of the season of Winter! What's not to like about Spring? We can open the windows, begin to clean out what no longer serves us, and try lighter recipes! Try the recipe below on a salad or cold pasta dish!
Eat Well and Be Well,
Lemon Basil Vinaigrette
The juice of a lemon and some zest
2-3 oz of basil leaves
pinch of sea salt
small clove of garlic
3T or a big splash of red wine vinegar
1/2C extra virgin olive oil
Place lemon juice and vinegar in blender first, then add the remaining ingredients, except for the oil. Blend and scrape sides and blend again. Stream the oil while the blender is running or place the basil lemon puree in a jar and add the oil and shake. This is delicious on a green salad with chicken or as a dressing for a cold pasta salad. ENJOY!
