Strawberry Vinaigrette

image_pdfimage_print

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.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender*, starting with a liquid first.
  2. Blend for 40 seconds until smooth.
  3. Serve over your favorite salad greens.
  4. Enjoy!!

*I used my Vitamix, but basically any high-speed blender will work.
