Basil is native to India but is found in cuisines all over the world. Basil has a sweet and powerful flavor that is most commonly used in Italian cooking but can be found often in Chinese and Thai recipes as well.

Add a pinch of basil to marinara or pasta sauce for a sweet kick in flavor. A classic summer salad that uses basil is a caprese salad. To make, combine fresh tomatoes, torn basil, slices of fresh mozzarella, olive oil and salt.

Basil is thought to have antioxidant, antiviral and antimicrobial properties as well.
