Who else has that one fruit that they absolutely LOVE? Like when you go to the store and see it on sale, you do a little happy dance (and get the weirdest stares)? For me, that’s strawberries. They’re A-MA-ZING! So, naturally, I love making all sorts of recipes using these sweet-and-tangy berries, like this Simple Strawberry Vinaigrette!
I’ve always been picky with salads, and can only enjoy ones that are fresh, and topped with flavorful dressing. This Simple Strawberry Vinaigrette does NOT disappoint! It’s chuck full of strawberry goodness, with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Mix it with some crisp greens, maybe a handful of almonds, and you’ve got a totally satisfying salad on your hands!
Makes about 1 cup dressing
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 lb. Strawberries
- 1 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1/8 tsp. Dried Tarragon
- 1/8 tsp. Sugar
- Slice the green tops off the strawberries, and wash well.
- Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth.
- ENJOY! Be sure to store leftovers in the fridge.
Note: I’ve done some where I included almonds in the vinaigrette, just blending it with everything – also delish!
Don’t make too much at once, because it doesn’t store for very long. Besides, the flavor is best fresh! I try to just make it as I go…but you could do it a day or so ahead and be fine. I haven’t tried freezing it, yet, but that could work. If you give it a try, please let us know how it worked out!
