Orange Vinaigrette Dressing with Berries, Peaches, and basil

This recipe puts together peaches and blueberries. It reminded me of another recipe that I made for a picnic. It was peach with berry pie. However, it doesn’t contain a crust it is wonderful with a vinegar dressing. I have made it several times for company and it is always a hit. Basil leaves are one of my favorite herbs to use on food. It gives this recipe a nice pungent taste. Enjoy
