Basil is best enjoyed fresh, but dried basil has its place in the kitchen too. Classic Italian sauces, chicken or fish, pasta salads, and salad dressings are all common dishes this fragrant leaf shines in. It pairs well with tomatoes, so use a bit anytime you have tomatoes in the recipe; and it lends a fresh herbaceous note against heavier flavors like beef and pork. If you're looking for a simple ingredient to bring interest to a more bland dish, basil is an easy option.
