  • Wash and dry the fresh basil leaves thoroughly. Remove any tough stems and discard them.
  • In a blender or food processor, combine the fresh basil leaves, minced garlic, lemon juice, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  • Begin blending the ingredients on low speed, gradually increasing the speed to medium-high. Blend until the basil leaves are finely chopped and the mixture starts to come together.
  • While the blender is running, slowly drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil. This will help emulsify the vinaigrette and create a smooth consistency.
  • Continue blending until all the ingredients are well combined and the vinaigrette is creamy and smooth.
  • Taste the vinaigrette and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding more salt, pepper, or lemon juice according to your preference.
  • Once the vinaigrette is ready, transfer it to a glass jar or airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator until ready to use.
