I've also heard that fried basil leaves are a great snack, garnish and seasoning - all in one.

I make a strawberry basil ice cream. I also like strawberries tossed with chopped basil and balsamic vinegar. There is always pesto which is great on soups and pasta. I also drizzle chopped basil, minced garlic and olive oil. I have also made basil infused olive oil.

Thai basil chicken stir fry is one of my favorite meals! Thai basil is slightly different than Italian basil, but I have made it with both.

I also like basil lemonade for a refreshing drink.

I just got my bi-weekly produce box, and one of the things in it is a bunch of fresh basil.

Okay, this will probably sound seriously stupid. I've never learned what to do with basil that doesn't involve tomatoes. The only fresh tomatoes available to me right now are imported, and I'm trying to stick with local produce. If I could get tomatoes I'd be getting some burrata and making Caprese salad for dinner tonight!

What does basil go with other than tomatoes?
