- 1 cup packed fresh basil chiffonade
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar

I never have time in the summer...mostly because I prefer hanging out with friends, catching glassy ocean time, or getting outside and climbing. These quick 15 minute healthy, delicious, and fresh meals that use all the delicious summer produce are my go-to...and trust me, you'll want them to be yours, too!
Want this to be carb-less? Throw the salad on top of a bed of lettuce instead of the toast, and it is just as delicious! I use butter lettuce with this one, and just LOVE it!
And make sure to use a high quality extra virgin olive oil for the dressing...you can use the cheap stuff for cooking, but with dressings always opt for the best.
