Creamy Basil Dressing with Roast Pumpkin salad

Guys this dressing could turn even plain salad leaves into an amazing meal πŸ˜‰

Creamy basil goodness with a punch of flavour, nothing nasty and vegan!

Basil has been dubbed “king of the herbs”… maybe something to do with the origin of its name from the Greek word for royal…? And its verrrryyyyy high in vitamin A and C.

So I used this gem of a dressing on top of a salad of mixed greens, mustard greens, French sorrel, purple cabbage, baby Roma tomatoes, roast pumpkin, avocado and pomegranate- Delish!
