This rich, herb infused butter is a quick way to perk up a summer steak, add some oomph to your veggies or top off a crusty loaf of bread. It is easy to make and such a simple way to boost your summertime meals.

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped basil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and stir until combined. Place butter mixture on a sheet of waxed paper and roll into a cylinder approximately 6 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Twist ends to seal. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before using so it is firm and easy to cut into portions. Store up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
