As spring goes on and strawberries become more abundant, I always begin to experiment with more ways to use them ( the early ones don’t always even make it home from the market!) Last year a few creations that came to me during later strawberry season, were Strawberry Avocado Salsa (In S.O.U.L Foods), and a Strawberry Nice cream, which the tutorial for is on my Instagram Page!
The first of this year, is this delicious strawberry Balsamic dressing. Seriously, y’all it’s almost like dessert! This would be fab for a caprese salad, or as a marinade for chicken. I served on a salad of some beautiful red butter lettuce, a few additional sliced strawberries, sliced radishes and a few raw red onions.
Try it and let me know what you’re putting it on, besides a spoon and eating from the jar, which might happen too!
Shallot Strawberry Balsamic Dressing
1 small shallot
4-6 Sweet Strawberries
2-3 Tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar
1/3-1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
In a blender, add the shallot, strawberries and balsamic vinegar.
Turn the blender on and combine, after 30 seconds begin to slowly pour in the olive oil, streaming it in until mixture emulsifies.
When fully combined, either leave as is or thin to desired consistency with water.
Taste and adjust, more balsamic for more tanginess or more salt for a more rounded flavor.
Enjoy in the fridge for up to 5 ish days!
