Fresh Basil Vinaigrette
The secret to making a salad dressing with rich herb flavor isn't just using more fresh herbs-it's how you handle them.
Why This Recipe Works
Homemade vinaigrettes are easy to make and much more flavorful than their bottled counterparts. For our Fresh Basil Vinaigrette recipe, we used regular olive oil, which imparted more flavor than canola and vegetable oils but didn’t overpower the herbs the way extra virgin olive oil did. Mixing our vinaigrette recipe in the blender helped to extract the herbs’ flavors.
