Basil Dressing

Vinegar and Oil Dressing

Besides tasting good Basil Dressing has the advantage of killing some of the bacteria that might reside in salad. This fairly simple recipe can be put in the refrigerator and used for several weeks.

1 onion
6 cloves garlic
2/3 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon black pepper

Cut onion into tiny pieces. Mince garlic and put into quart jar. Add remaining ingredients and shake vigorously (covering the jar first, of course). Refrigerate over-night to allow appropriate blending of flavors. Shake again before using on salad.
