I'm a sucker for homemade vinaigrette and since I now have a basil plant I can't find enough things to do with basil so I decided to pair it up with some strawberries recently. This recipe isn't an exact science so please adjust to your taste.
4-5 strawberries, cut in half
1/8 cup of red wine vinegar (or apple cider, or balsamic)
1/4 cup of EVOO
3 basil leaves
1 garlic clove minced
salt and pepper to taste
Italian seasoning (optional)
Put all into a blender and emulsify until smooth. (I used my immersion blender and it was done in seconds.) I made the salad with butter lettuce, Gorgonzola, and roasted chopped almonds.
