I adore basil! Fresh basil leaves, onion, and garlic blended with butter is great on breads and vegetables. Refrigerate leftovers.

As a fellow basil lover I have to say that this was fantastic! I did need to add a bit of olive oil to the blender to get everything to combine but that was my only change. This is great on bread steak corn on the cob and even pasta! This is a definite keeper YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:)
