Lemons’ health benefits are immense. To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.
As I don’t use sugar for my cooking I often use stevia which is the healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. So all you need in this olive oil lemon juice salad dressing is a few drops. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed.

Basil has been considered to be ‘The Oldest Herb’. It has been used for health reasons for its distinct flavour which is delicious. It is one of my favorite herbs to use in my kitchen. Basil adds a tastiness to this tomato salad dressing.
