Recipe

Basil-flavored oil rather than fresh herbs gives this vinaigrette an emerald-green color and a subtle but unmistakable herb flavor--as well as the ultimate summer fragrance. The vinaigrette is versatile; you can hardly go wrong combining basil’s peppery sweetness with any salad, vegetable, or fish.

Yield: Makes 1¼ cups

Ingredients

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus a little more, if needed
  • ¼ cup champagne vinegar, plus a little more, if needed
  • 1 cup Basil Oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Serve with:

Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk the salt with the vinegar until the salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the basil oil until emulsified. Taste. Season with pepper and a little more salt, if needed, and add more vinegar or oil, if needed.

Notes

Make-ahead note:

Basil Vinaigrette can be refrigerated up to 3 weeks. Whisk to recombine before using.
