I love salads. I never order a salad for lunch and rarely order any for dinner, because I know I can make an exceptional salad at home and the price is unbeatable. If I do order a salad at a restaurant for dinner, I always ask for the dressing on the side. I usually make basic vinaigrettes but I wanted something different, so I came up with this. It is sweet from the strawberries but tangy from the cider, perfect combination. I used my favorite bottle, so it can be stored in the fridge for days up to three weeks.
1/4 filter water
1/2 cup extra virgin oil or avocado oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
3 tbsp coconut palm sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp chia seeds
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender*, starting with a liquid first.
- Blend for 40 seconds until smooth.
- Serve over your favorite salad greens.
*I used my Vitamix, but basically any high-speed blender will work.
