Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

strawberry vinaigrette

We eat a lot of fresh salads here, so we also like to have good homemade dressings. This is one I like to make when we have a lot of fresh strawberries around. I love strawberries, they’re one of my favorite fruits – and we have friends that love to share with us from their strawberry bushes. Come summer I get to create lots of recipes with them from dressings, to salads, to jams, and I like to just snack on them.

1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, stems removed and sliced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh mint, diced
1 teaspoon lime juice

In a blender, place the strawberries and puree until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Store in a container in the fridge. Makes about one cup. Drizzle on salad or use as a dip for veggies or fruits. Enjoy!
