Cook's Notes

When cutting basil, stack a few basil leaves (of similar size). Roll into a tight cylinder; with a sharp knife, slice crosswise into thin strips.

    Made this in the am and was worried it wouldn't hold 'till dinner but it was great. transferred into serving dish so that it wasn't so watery - all the flavor stayed. Will make again.
