Multiple Personality Basil Balsamic Dressing/Marinade/Glaze

Laura lee Cloutier


This is my go-to dressing, glaze and marinade. I make it weekly to always have on hand. It is a most versitile dressing/marinade that is perfect for any protien or salad on your lazy BBQ day. Just marinate the day before (or the hour) or drizzle on top of field greens. My favorite is to grill up several chicken breasts with this marinade then serve the chicken over field greens with this dressing.

This also works well as a glaze and keeps in the fridge for several weeks.
