Lemon basil dressing with basil and pepita salad

Lemon basil dressing with basil and pepita salad

My garden had an overload of delicious fragrant basil so I couldn’t help but make a dressing and salad.
during summer I always crave salads but I eat them all year round no matter how hot or cold.
fall or winter salads are delicious and make me feel like it’s almost Christmas or thanksgiving.
Gluten free option

Salads are usually gluten free unless you add croutons or pita bread. Use gluten free croutons or leave them out. Another option is to use healthy organic croutons which is what I use.


add a little less lemon juice and/or some sweetener such as honey or sugar to make it a sweeter dressing. Tip: using honey will make this non-vegan.
