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
- In a food processor or blender process strawberries, vinegar, sugar and seasonings.
- When smooth, gradually add the oil while the blender or processor is mixing.
Dressing should be kept refrigerated, and will last about 2 weeks.
Recipe yields about 3 cups.
