Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

My favorite salad dressing right now! This strawberry balsamic vinaigrette is so refreshing on a hot day. Plus it pairs well with a bunch of different foods- salmon, chicken, or just a salad loaded with fresh fruit and avocado. It’s been so hot here lately, all I’ve been craving have been meals that don’t require the oven on. Luckily this salad dressing is made in the food processor or blender and doesn’t require an oven!

What you need to make this recipe:

1. Food processor or blender

I use this food processor- here on amazon. I love it because it’s small so it’s perfect for chopping veggies or making a dressing or sauce! Sometimes blenders don’t work as well for small batch things like this. But if you only have a blender, it will definitely work! It just might be a pain pouring it out.

2. Strawberries! The star of the show

I love pairing strawberries and balsamic together. Such a tasty combo that goes well on a variety of different foods. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. If you use frozen, thaw them out first. Frozen is a great affordable option.

3. Olive Oil

Try and use high quality olive oil if you can! If it’s cheap, sometimes the flavor can be off. Use whatever is within your budget though!

4. Balsamic Vinegar

5. Garlic Powder

6. Maple Syrup

Use pure maple syrup, not the kind you probably used as a kid on pancakes or waffles. If you aren’t vegan, you can sub honey here!

7. Salt & Pepper
