•Have a ton of basil still kickin it in your garden? Pesto is a great idea, but basil salt is something a little different to try. Great to sprinkle on fresh garden tomatoes, finish up a pasta, grilled corn or garlic bread. OR (light bulb) rim a glass with basil salt when making basil -mint lemonade, or jazz up a mojito!
