Blender Basil Dressing
If you’ve got a blender at home, then you should know that these things aren’t just for purees or shakes. Blenders can also help you greatly in concocting great salad dressings. Here is a recipe for a wonderful and easy-to-make basil dressing.
The ingredients for this recipe are as follows:
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 to 5 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cloves garlic, chopped
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Add the vinegars, basil, sugar, garlic, oils, salt, and pepper in a blender. Pulse the mixture, or mix it in short bursts so that the ingredients combine thoroughly and the basil do not get chopped too fine. A combination of butter lettuce, freshly shredded Parmesan cheese, marinated mushrooms, juicy red ripe tomatoes, and even some ripe wedges of Haas avocado make for a delightfully superb salad. This recipe yields about a cup dressing.
