Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

(from 5/6/09 newsletter)

We use this great dressing seasonally on a spinach salad.  We add a strong cheese-blue or feta, some nuts, a little onion and top with fresh berries. You can also top it with grilled chicken or fish for a complete meal. Enjoy! 
1 pt strawberries, sliced
2 cups vegetable oil
(any mild oil will do. Extra virgin olive oil is not recommended
because its flavor is too strong and will overpower the strawberries)
1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbl granulated sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper 
a pinch of dried tarragon
 
  1. In a food processor or blender process strawberries, vinegar, sugar and seasonings.
  2. When smooth, gradually add the oil while the blender or processor is mixing.
  3. Dressing should be kept refrigerated, and will last about 2 weeks.

    Recipe yields about 3 cups.
