Fresh Basil Vinaigrette

I wanted to make a vinaigrette using the fresh basil I had in the refrigerator so I threw together some basil, parsley, garlic, olive oil, canola oil, red wine vinegar, white balsamic vinegar, and a bit of sugar together.  I loved the vibrant green color – it was beautiful!  The vinaigrette turned out tangy and delicious with a wonderful basil flavor.  It topped our salad perfectly and was a big hit with all of us, especially my daughter.

Combine the fresh basil, parsley, garlic, canola oil, olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, and sugar together in a bowl.  Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Blend for several minutes with an immersion blender until it’s well combined and the color is vibrant green.  Set aside and let the flavors mingle for awhile before drizzling on a salad.  Enjoy.
