- 10 large fresh basil leaves (about 1 cup loosely packed)
- Zest and juice of 2 lemons
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Combine basil, lemon zest and juice, oil, and maple syrup in a blender. Puree and transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Keeps in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days. Makes about 1 cup.
This easy sauce is wonderful on salads, on eggs, on cooked vegetables, and over grilled fish.
