Sweeter and subtler than its Italian counterpart, Greek basil’s crunchy texture comes with floral notes.
The health benefits of Greek basil are similar to other varieties of the herb. It is rich in vitamins A, K, and C, as well as magnesium, iron, potassium, and calcium — a brilliant way to boost the immune system while improving cramps and hormonal imbalance during menstruation.
With smaller, sweeter leaves than other basils, this herb is ideal for sprinkling on pasta and salads. For those fancying themselves as a mixologist, Greek basil is also a fantastic garnish for refreshing cocktails.
