Homemade Strawberry Salad Dressing

Katie:  After realizing how many artificial ingredients and how much sugar (8 grams per serving!) were in the low-fat salad dressing I’d been using, I decided to make my own dressing.  I used this recipe from Cooking Light, which was super quick to make.  I ended up with a delicious and healthier dressing that tastes great, especially with spinach.  Since it was so easy to make, I think I’ll definitely experiment with other homemade dressing in the future!

Strawberry Salad Dressing  (from Cooking Light)

  • 2 cups whole strawberries
  • 1/3 cup champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Blend everything in a blender or food processor.  It’s that simple!

  3. Reblogged this on In Love With The Lord Poetry and Prose and commented:
    This sounds sooooo good!

  4. Just made some: It’s delicious over a salad of spinach, strawberries, and almonds. Will be great this summer when it’s too hot to eat anything else.

  5. How long will it keep in a jar in the fridge?

  6. hi! i have been wanting to make this, and i have the strawberries. It is july and I want to jar/can it for christmas. Does anyone know how long this lasts??? I am not a great cook, nor have i ever done more canning then jam. P

  7. Ctrbeth, it should last for about a week in the fridge. Joy, it isn’t processing for canning, but you might be able to freeze it and give it as a gift. Just remember to let people know that it needs to be refrigerated!

  8. thanks for answering! maybe ill freeze the strawberries and make it right before christmas! thanks again!
