Strawberry Basil Vinaigrette – Dressing, Dipping Sauce and Marinade

Strawberry Basil Vinaigrette - Dressing, Dipping Sauce And Marinade


It doesn’t get much easier than this Strawberry Basil Vinaigrette made in your blender.


In fact vinaigrettes in general are pretty simple to make. Having just a few basic ingredients on hand in your pantry will allow you to come up with simple flavorful vinaigrettes in no time. Some items to stock include:

  • Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Aged Balsamic
  • Lemons
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Dried Herbs
  • Honey
  • Whole Grain Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper

If you stock your pantry and refrigerator with these items you will never have to buy salad dressing again! It will save you time and money and you will always have a fresh dressing on hand.

To make salad dressing in a snap you can use a handheld blender or a traditional blender.

For this amazingly easy summer dressing I combined fresh strawberries and basil with a few of the ingredients above.

This recipe yields 2 Cups of dressing/marinade.

1 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Pound Fresh Strawberries
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Honey
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Salt

Combine all the ingredients in the blender.

Blend the dressing on low speed, increasing the speed to medium after it begins to get smooth. Once the dressing looks like dressing it’s done!

That’s it, a simple, fresh, easy dressing, in minutes.

I served this dressing on a salad of fresh arugula, roasted beets, feta and apple and it was divine. I can’t wait to try it as a marinade for barbecue chicken.
