• 1/4 cup fresh basil, minced
• 3 tablespoons mixed-herb white wine vinegar
• 2 tablespoons water
• 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
• 1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 1 green onion, thinly sliced

1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. For a more emulsified dressing, blend all ingredients except oil, then slowly drizzle in the oil with the blender running. Cover and chill for several hours before using to allow flavors to blend.
