Creamy Basil Dressing

Synergy chicken tossed in Creamy Basil Dressing, served on a bed of lettuce leaves and sprinkled with toasted almonds.

On the farm, we first seed our basil in redwood flats before transplanting to a bed.

Based on a recipe from Gourmet Magazine

1 cup packed fresh Synergy basil
2 1/2 tablespoons chopped shallot
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons safflower mayonnaise
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Use as a dressing for salad of summer lettuces or sliced tomatoes or cold summer chicken salad.
