Gluten-Free Meals with Fresh Herbs (Basil) — Menu Plan Sept. 4

By · Print This Post Print This Post

We’re cooking with Fresh Herbs at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month. This week, we’re sharing recipe links and ideas for using fresh basil. 

I love all the fresh herbs available during the summer, and the basil is still plentiful at the markets. It’s always nice to add fresh basil to pasta salads (or any salad), but I found a wide variety of gluten-free recipes that use basil.

What meals do you like to add basil? Anyone ever try basil in cookies? I’m anxious to give them a try.
