Creating Fresh Basil Vinaigrette Dressing


A bottled salad dressing just can’t match the flavor of one made with fresh ingredients. View this step-by-step photo tour to see how quick and easy it is to create your own fresh homemade Basil Vinaigrette.

Start by gathering and measuring all your ingredients. (See recipe for complete ingredients and preparation instructions.)

Process the fresh basil leaves in a food processor until they are evenly minced.

Add in the red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, and Dijon mustard, and blend until thoroughly blended.

Scrape down the sides of the food processor.

With the food processor running, slowly pour in the oil in a thin stream.

Serve immediately or store up to a day. It’s a great dressing for our Grilled Chicken & Fresh Vegetables Salad.
