If this fabulous Sweet Basil Vinaigrette could talk, it would be shouting "summer!" It's sweet, tangy and bursting with vibrant, delicious basil flavor!
Place basil leaves in a strainer and rinse well with cold water. Drain well.
Combine all ingredinets except the oil in a food processor or blender. Puree mixture until smooth and bright green.
With the motor running, slowly add the salad oil to form an emulsion. (See Café Tips above in the post for tricks on how to do this.)
Store in an airtight jar or container in the refrigerator. Dressing keeps for 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
See Café Tips above in the post for more detailed instructions and tips.
Makes about 1½ cups of dressing.
