Salsa and Olive Oil Salad Dressing

This simple, basil-scented dressing of salsa and olive oil can be made in no time flat and offers an offbeat alternative for jazzing up green salads.

Makes about 1 cup

  • 2/3 cup salsa, any variety of your choice, 
    homemade (such as Salsa Ranchera) or store-bought
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon or lime, to taste
  • 6 to 8 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

Combine the ingredients in a cruet and shake well. If the salsa is very chunky, you may want to first whirl the ingredients in a food processor or process briefly with an immersion blender. Serve at once. Refrigerate whatever is not used at once; bring to room temperature before using.
