This strawberry vinaigrette is light, refreshing, sweet with a hint of tanginess. This strawberry salad dressing is one of my go-to’s whenever I have an abundance of strawberries.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- strawberries — once strawberries are picked, the ripen process stops. So, try to find the most red strawberries you can find! Here’s how I wash and store my strawberries before using.
- apple cider vinegar — you’ll need an acid to make a vinaigrette. I use apple cider vinegar for this recipe to add tang and flavour.
- maple syrup — for some additional sweetness.
- salt — just a pinch. a little goes a long way.
- olive oil — for dressings, I recommend using a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the best flavour.
How to Make Strawberry Vinaigrette
- Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Store in an airtight container if you’re not using it immediately.
- apple cider vinegar: if you do not have ACV, then try using red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, or if you don’t have any of those, sherry vinegar.
- maple syrup: honey is a great alternative if you do not need this salad dressing to be plant-based/vegan. Agave can be used as well.
- olive oil: if you prefer to use a different neutral oil you have on hand, you are more than welcomed to do so.
What to Serve with Strawberry Vinaigrette
Here are some recipes you might like to pair with this strawberry dressing.
- I recommend using the strawberry vinaigrette within the week.
- Store the strawberry salad dressing in an airtight container such as a mason jar.
- Since this recipe doesn’t take a lot of effort to make, I do not recommend freezing it. However, if you have a ton of strawberries, you could freeze those instead and then use it for the dressing year round.
- To a blender or food processor, add all of the ingredients. Blend until combined.
- Store in an airtight container if not used immediately.
