Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

We were going to a friend’s house for a birthday celebration and I wanted to make a special salad to go with dinner. I went online in search of a summery vinaigrette and found one at Barefeet In The Kitchen that looked perfect. I adapted it a bit by using fresh strawberries, basil instead of rosemary, and a bit of vegetable oil. It couldn’t have been easier to make. It tasted a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and tangy. It was light, flavorful, and perfectly delicious. This vinaigrette was a big hit with everyone except for my son, who wasn’t a fan. I will be making this again… SOON. Thanks for the great recipe Mary!

Combine the sliced strawberries, white balsamic vinegar, vegetable oil, olive oil, orange juice, honey, basil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a large container. Blend using an immersion blender (or regular blender) until well combined. Taste and re-season with seasonings or honey if needed. Drizzle over salad and serve. Enjoy.

    When ever I go to my moms I always use her raspberry balsamic vinaigrette because I think it is fantastic on salads. I definitely would love this version!!!

    This is a different take on a salad dressing – great idea. I would have never thought to use strawberries in the dressing.

      Mine lasted three days in the refrigerator. It didn’t go bad – we used it all up. :)
