Fresh Spinach-Basil Dressing/Sauce

DSCF5163With the abundance of spinach available during the summer months, try this unusual green dressing to top your garden salad with or mix it into a fresh pasta or quinoa salad. Culinary experts particularly enjoy it drizzled over steamed tiny new-potatoes instead of butter.  My thought is to spread some over lightly toasted crusty bread as a nice addition to the dinner table like bruschetta.  At your next BBQ, pour a generous amount of this sauce over freshly grilled beef or lamb. Give this recipe a try and see how many ways you can incorporate it into your daily meal planning. Is you mouth watering yet?

FRESH SPINACH-BASIL SAUCE

  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves, packed
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon flaxseed oil
  • 2 Tablespoons brown rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and pepper

Mix spinach, basil, green onions, oils, vinegar, honey and cayenne in a blender or small food processor until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Enjoy, L.L
