Strawberry Balsamic Dressing
Yield: 1+ cup
Fresh strawberries and a short list of pantry staples are all that's needed for a dressing that's sure to become a family favorite!


  • 1 cup (5-6 ounces) fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) balsamic vinegar* (no need for aged or “good” balsamic)
  • 1/4 cup (56ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon (20g) pure maple syrup (could substitute honey)
  • 1 teaspoon (5g) Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and a few grinds of the pepper mill


  1. In a blender or food processor, blend the strawberries, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup, Dijon, salt and pepper until smooth. Scrape down the sides once or twice as needed.
  2. The dressing can be made in advance and will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. There will be enough dressing for several salads.


*I recently made this dressing with white balsamic vinegar in place of regular balsamic with outstanding results. Feel free to try both ways or with whichever you have on hand.
