This simple yet satisfying salad dressing is great on so many levels.  The basil can be replaced with any herb and the lime can be replaced with any citrus juice.  Some other combinations I suggest are as follows:  Lime and cilantro, Lemon and Oregano, Garlic (use 1 raw clove in place of herb or in addition) and Lemon, Pineapple and Basil, the list is endless!

This is the basic recipe:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 -2 tablespoons of fresh basil

optional additions: 

1 tbs shallots, minced

1 clove garlic

a teaspoon of maple syrup or honey 

a sprinkle of sea salt

Mix in food processor until blended and emulsified.  Pour over salad
