Mixed Greens with Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette

Mixed Greens with Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette
Makes 4 servings

I’ve been told that the true sign of maturity is being able to care for another living thing. Since I’m currently single, and not looking for any pets or babies to fill that void in the near future, I decided to test out my grown-up conscientiousness by buying (and potting, mind you) a basil plant. It’s been a few weeks now, and after giving the majority of its leaves to this dressing, my baby is back in action, and my how he’s grown.

5oz mixed greens
¼ cup basil leaves
½ lemon, juiced
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp honey
1 tsp white vinegar
½ tsp salt
¼ cup olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until herbs are completely incorporated and the dressing is light and frothy. Taste for seasoning and add any additional olive oil as necessary for desired flavor.

Toss the greens with the dressing and serve.
