I still have a ton of basil, so my eyes perked up when I saw this tomato basil salad. This looks like a great way to use my basil. I wish that I had tomatoes from the garden to go with it! Right now, it’s too hot and dry for much of anything to grow in Texas.
And here is a use for basil you probably didn’t know about: If you are working outside and get bitten or stung by an insect chewing up a basil leaf and applying to the bite will help relieve the pain and draw out the venom.
