Basil Vinaigrette

In July, we have so much lettuce coming out of the garden, that great salad dressings are a must.   This one works well over Vessey’s Mesclun Mix-Baby Leaf Blend Mixed Greens my favourite mixed lettuce!  When my Golden Cherry Tomatoes are ripe, mid-July, I slice in half and add them to the salad. Yum!
 Makes 1 cup of dressing
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinigar
  • 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • dash of salt and pepper


Place all ingredients in a mason jar & shake. Pour over or toss with your favorite salad to serve.
