Purple Basil

Purple Basil is a beautiful and colorful addition to the herb garden. One of my favorite ways to use it is in a fresh garden salad. The flavor is mild and adds a pleasing color to the salad as well and the subtle flavor of basil. You can make purple basil pesto for pasta or chicken or make a purple basil butter with garlic chive to spread on your freshly baked bread. Yum!!
