And now for a recipe!  I'm sharing a very simple homemade salad dressing recipe.  It's yummy!

Pesto Vinaigrette

kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts (optional)
2 cups fresh basil leaves, stems removed
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar

cracked black pepper, to taste

1. In the bowl of a food processor, purée garlic and salt until a paste is formed. Add pine nuts and basil and process until a fine paste formed.
