Use any herbs you have on hand for this corn spread. We especially love using basil for its fragrance and flavor. The secret to the bright green color is the blanching process. Use this oil to drizzle over pasta or fresh protein, or serve with toasted bread or challah with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
