Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Strawberry + Spinach Salad (Shot A)
On Summer days, when our garden is overflowing with lettuces, we often have salads for lunch and dinner. To change up the flavors a bit, I have fun creating some new homemade dressings.

Seasonal strawberries are perfect for melding sweet and savory foods, such as in a Cobb Salad, or with a bit of feta and almonds.

Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing
1 Cup fresh Organic Strawberries, washed & hulled
1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2/3 Cup Olive Oil
2 tsp. Maple Syrup, Honey, or Raw Sugar
1/2 tsp dried Tarragon
1/2 tsp dried Parsley
1 tsp (or to taste) Real Salt
Sprinkle of freshly ground Black Pepper

Purée strawberries in a food processor or blender. Combine well with remaining ingredients and shake well. (Make sure sugar is dissolved.) Drizzle over salads and serve.

Optional salad addition: Slice up another cup of strawberries for a beautiful and sweet garnish on your salad! A bit of fresh basil is delicious, too, if you have it.
