Lemon Basil Oil

This recipe is delicious, and so good for you! Lemon basil oil is the French version of pesto. It’s also less expensive to make versus the Italian version of pesto because you leave out the parmesan cheese and pine nuts.
Lemon basil oil is excellent for so many things. Baste it on meats, spoon over scrambled eggs, use as a dip, as a salad dressing or drizzled over tomatoes, use it as a condiment – the list goes on and on. If you love basil, you will love this healthy treat!
