Basil Infused Salad Oil

Basil Infused Salad Oil
My next set of recipes uses oil mixed with Italian herbs and I thought it is good to put them as a separate post. Being in Singapore I have access to all the herbs freshly in almost all grocery shops, however I felt there should be some other easy way to make these oils as I am aware that all the herbs are not available in all places.
Basil leaves infused in olive oil along with Italian pizza topper mix & garlic.

The most common ingredient which is available in many places these days are the pizza topper mix which contains all the herbs in dried form hence I decided to try out with the pizza topper. Adding basil to it gave a good taste,smell and color. You may choose to double up the quantity if there no fresh herbs available in your place. Since I wanted a basil infused oil I decided to reduce the quantity of pizza mix herbs. However you may mix and match according to your preference.
