Lemon Basil Oil

This recipe is delicious and so good for you!
Lemon basil oil is the French version of pesto. It's also a cheaper version of pesto because you leave out the parmesan cheese and pine nuts. I think that lemon basil oil is excellent for so many things. I love to baste it on meats, as I grill them. It's wonderful on corn on the cob, as a salad dressing, drizzled over tomatoes, over potatoes, the list goes on and on.


  • 4 Cups Fresh Basil leaves
  • ¾ Cup Organic Olive oil
  • Two lemons zested and juiced
  • One teaspoon Pink salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Put all ingredients in Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth.  Pour in glass jar and drizzle on everything! Will keep for seven days in Refrigerator.
