Basil, my most used herb…


Basil is such an all purpose herb. I use it lots, not only in spaghetti sauce, but in salads and sandwiches. Basil is easy to find and just as easy to grow. I buy a small plant at the grocery store for a few bucks and it turns into a massive bush. Don’t let it flower, cut the leaves before that happens and USE IT! Make pesto, make a sandwich on a baguette with fresh mozarella, tomato and basil piled high, it’s so refreshing… another idea is a caprese salad… slice fresh tomatoes and some fresh mozarella. I put it in a plate alternating the mozarella and tomato with some basil tucked beside each, drizzle with a little olive oil, a light sprinkle of S&P and whoa! You have yourself the most delightful little salad!

Catch you back here tomorrow!
