Strawberry Vinaigrette Tips
How do I store a strawberry vinaigrette?Store strawberry vinaigrette in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
Can I substitute olive oil with other oils?Yes, while this recipe calls for olive oil, you can substitute another type of oil. Avocado oil, flax oil and walnut oil are all good choices.
What other seasonings can I add?The sky's the limit! Some easy additions include cracked black pepper, fresh basil or Italian blend seasoning.
What can I pair with a strawberry vinaigrette?You can serve this delicious dressing on a spinach and asparagus salad, spread on a bistro-inspired turkey sandwich or use to marinate grilled chicken.
Can I use fresh strawberries or ones that are overripe?This dressing is a wonderful way to use up overripe strawberries, but just ripe strawberries also work.
Can I get rid of the strawberry seeds?If you want your vinaigrette to be seed-free, use a fine mesh sieve to strain the strawberries after they've been blended.

By itself, I liked the dressing and thought it had good flavor. However, on salad as a dressing, the flavor overpowered and did not compliment the greens.

A delicious change of pace. Followed the recipe and enjoyed the salad. Even those in my family who are not salad fans liked this.

I made this last night and refrigerated it for today. This is so delicious! My daughter says it almost tastes like a smoothie. And yes, I only had a bag of mixed berries ala strawberries, raspberries and blackberries and it is still awesome. Definately 5*. A summer-time al fresco staple!
