Piña Colada Protein Smoothie

This Homemade Strawberry Vinaigrette adds such delicious flavor to any salad. The combination of fresh, local, sweet strawberries with tangy balsamic vinaigrette is salad dressing perfection. This vegan salad dressing is also Paleo friendly and will be loved by all!

Strawberry vinaigrette recipe in a jarStrawberry Vinaigrette Recipe

This vinaigrette screams summertime! Made with fresh strawberries, tart balsamic vinegar and salt and fresh ground black pepper to round it all out it will be perfect for a spring or summer salad! I also like to use it as a marinade for chicken of for a tart and sweet dip for fruits or veggies. 

It’s a great way to use up all those fresh, ripe strawberries! They can be slightly overripe, just be sure to test a strawberry from your batch to make sure it tastes good on it’s own.
