Call us crazy, but we love the berries-and-herb combination even better than milk and cookies. It's sweet. It's a bit savory. It's unexpectedly good. And it's the best way to make the most out of summer's bounty! With berries and fresh herbs in season, these recipes will have you impressing your guests and their tastebuds.
Lemon Basil Sherbet

It is an especially great solution for the unavoidable excess of basil plants you end up with every single summer.
