Basil Honey Dressing

Basil Honey Dressing Recipe

Thank you Liz Rueven at for including my Basil Honey Dressing Recipe in your beautiful story about Marina’s great new artisanal Honey Line.

You will love the vibrant basil color and flavor in this dressing. The pair of basil and honey just can’t be beat. I like to make this dressing in summer, when basil is plentiful, and use it in salad greens that include tomatoes, fennel or olives.

    I made this using red basil from our garden and it was justly lovely! It came out pink because of the red basil, which made it feel like light because it reminded our guests of a raspberry vinaigrette.
