Green Queen Salad Dressing

The marriage of basil and cilantro creates a sensational dressing for fresh green vegetable salads, cooked grains and pasta.

Serves 8 or more
Time: 5 minutes

1 bunch fresh basil, 2 cups, rinsed
1 small bunch cilantro, 1 cup, rinsed
juice of 1 lemon (about 1/3 cup or to taste)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Blend all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

Substitute parsley for cilantro, omit the black pepper and add fresh garlic cloves or garlic tops. From Leslie Cerier's cookbook, Going Wild in the Kitchen (2005, Square One Publishers)
