Lemon Basil Vinaigrette
For more than just salads - use this springy vinaigrette for sandwiches, over roasted veggies, as a marinade for chicken. Anything you want!
- 1/2 c olive oil
- 2 tsp white wine vinegar
- 1-2 tbsp mustard
- 2-4 grated cloves of garlic (I always use 4+, we like the garlic flavor)
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 2 tbsp chopped basil
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a jar and shake like heck until the vinaigrette comes together.
Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. If you get a forward tasting olive oil flavor, add a little more mustard and lemon; if it's too mustardy, add some more lemon, garlic and a bit more oil.
