Basil Olive Vinaigrette

Basil Olive Vinaigrette

Recipe accompanies Israeli Couscous with Sausage and Vegetables. "Dinner at your doorstep" by Michael Hastings. Recipe from Dinners on the Porch, a food delivery service and blog. Buy the mixed olives from a supermarket olive or salad bar. This makes more dressing than is needed for the couscous. Reserve extra dressing for another use.
