I crave salads most during the spring and summer months. Now that strawberries are in season, use them to make this fruity, light, and refreshing salad dressing that enlivens any combination of greens. This recipe makes quite a bit, so it is a nice option if you are feeding a crowd. It will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week.
Strawberry Honey Salad Dressing
2-3/4 c. sliced strawberries
1/3 c. honey
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. water (or more if too thick)
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 c. canola oil
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
In a blender combine strawberries, honey, vinegar, water, lemon juice, and mustard. Blend well. Add salt and pepper. Blend again. With the motor running, slowly add the oils and blend until smooth. Makes 3 cups.
