Some questions you may have
How long does the basil dressing last in the fridge? This basil vinaigrette lasts a long time in the refrigerator. Prepare it on Monday so it can be your vinaigrette for the whole week.
What does it taste good on? I prepared this salad with little gem salad, avocado, and dried cherries. But you can use it anywhere:
- Like a spring mix
- It is fantastic if you use it to season the zucchini carpaccio
- You can use it in the lettuce and peaches summer salad
- I love it over hummus as a dip for pita chips and crudites
✎TIP How to store fresh herbs? The best way to keep fresh herbs is in the refrigerator. I wrap them in paper towles and place them in the veggies drawers or in a glass container.
I love to combine all kinds of flavors and textures in salads, no matter what type of salad it is, whether it is lettuce, spinach, or kale. Nuts, seeds, microgreens, and a good dressing, make a huge difference in a salad.
✨✨GIVE IT A TWIST: If you don’t have dehydrated cherries, add whatever you have at home: nuts, seeds, or dried fruits, this dressing goes well with a lot of different things, so feel free to add what you like.
