Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette

I'm sure that right now you probably are getting an abundance of salad makings in your CSA share along with a lot of fragrant fresh basil, yes? If not then get your butt down to your local farmers market and get some because it's prime time for it! My all time favorite thing to do with basil (that's quick and easy) is to make a great dressing. It's a dressing that can be versatile...drizzle it on salads, roasted portabello's, pizza, bruschetta or even if your a little wild...vegan ice cream! It can last a long time in the fridge. To make, take your basil, remove any tough stems or seeds, rinse with cold water, stuff your blender s it's about 1/2 filled. Add 2 cloves of fresh garlic, fresh ground black pepper, a 1/2 tsp celtic salt, and 1c of Balsamic vinegar, 3/4 c Maple Syrup, and 1 - 1 1/2 c Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Blend until super creamy. ENJOY! yummy.
