(Vegan) Creamy Basil Dressing

The best way I know of to store basil.

This recipe comes from Janet who writes: “Here is the recipe for the basil dressing I told you about. It’s great on lettuce, as a dip and sandwiches. It can be addictive (so yummy!).

The recipe comes from George Mateljan’s World’s Healthiest Foods website, an amazing place to find info about nutrition and healthy cooking: http://whfoods.org/index.php”
