Seriously one of the best dressings ever. You have to try it.

I love anything with strawberries. You’ve probably noticed by now the amount of recipes that include strawberries. It’s gotten to the point where I think I’ll need to create a section just for strawberries soon.

Strawberries as a salad dressing? I’ll have to eat more salads just to have the dressing.

This dressing is freshly made and includes only a few ingredients. Blend all those ingredients together and you’re done.

    When I lived in Canada – over two years ago now – there were so many delicious fruity vinaigrettes that were so easily available, but ever since moving back to the UK (and now living in Japan) I have been unable to find any! It didn’t even cross my mind that it would be so easy to make by myself! Thank you so much for this recipe!

    What a pretty salad dressing! I have made rapsberry vinaigrette, but never heard of strawberry vinaigrette. I love how you put salad in an avocado – beautiful presentation! I bet this would be good over a fruit salad as well. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

    Oh yum! I’m in love with Tahitian Vanilla Balsamic vinaigrette from Quintessentials Gourmet in Seattle. It’s amazing mixed with goat cheese and spread over strawberries. I’m planning on a Strawberry with Tahitian Vanilla Balsamic Jam when the Oregon strawberries are ripe in a few weeks.

    Love this idea. When we were last on Flprence they added strawberries to a Greek salad. It worked really well and I have done it regularly since. It always causes comment. Good comments :)

    I do something similar to this. I make a homemade jam, and then I use a portion of that batch, add it to some apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and spices to taste and its amazing!
