Backstory

When the tomatoes and basil are fresh out of the garden, this is my favorite recipe.

from the Silver Palate Cookbook

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
