Summer is the time for Basil
There is nothing quite like basil, tomatoes, fresh oregano and garlic, tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, Serve on a fresh picked leafy green lettuce for a beautiful and tasty salad. Add a little fresh dill and serve with grilled salmon.
Of course, we can't discuss basil without mentioning pesto. My favorite recipe for pesto is here on this older post. You will find hints for drying and freezing basil there too.
I found a yummy recipe on Martha Stewart's site for Stuffed Tomatoes with Basil Garnish. Here is the link for that one.
Next post will be about another of my other "can't do without" herbs; Oregano!
