Can you just smell this picture?
Oh basil. You are the essence of summer. Along with sunscreen, burning charcoal and salt air.
We’re growing our own little basil plant from seed, so while we wait patiently for our own harvest, I’m buying it from the market. I tossed the batch above with some chopped cherry tomato, balsamic viniagrette and cooked whole-wheat pasta. It made the perfect little salad. I also love to make insalate caprese, bruschetta and pesto. Yum, yum and yum.
How do you like to cook with basil? Any recipes to share? (pretty please)
