Basil Green Goddess Dressing

Basil is an herb that is a member of the mint family. It is mainly used in Italian and Southeast Asian cuisines. It is a great herb to keep in your kitchen via an herb garden, fresh from the grocery store, or dried in your pantry. I would love to have a basil plant someday, but I would need to grow a green thumb first! Basil contains vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium. You would need to eat a lot of basil to get the benefits of these nutrients, but you can get tons of flavor from this herb without sodium! This is what I think is the best benefit to using fresh or dried herbs – no sodium. This dressing is delicious on any fresh, spring or summer salad, or drizzled over tomatoes with mozzarella. Take your pick!
