Pureed strawberries make a distinctive base for a colorful salad dressing with a creamy consistency, and you still get the nutritional benefits--fiber, vitamin C, heart-healthy phytonutrients--of eating the whole berries. Source: EatingWell Magazine, Spring 2003

tasty but thick I'm always trying to find good homemade dressing recipes. I thought this one fit the bill since I had strawberries in the fridge. If you are a fan of thick dressings this one's for you. It did not have enough tartness for me. Also I used honey and it seemed too sweet. I would recommend making it without the sweetener tasting it then adjusting. Pros: easy to make with simple ingredients Cons: alot depends on the sweetness of the strawberries Read More

Was a hit at Easter dinner. Didn't have almond oil so used canola but threw a handful of almonds into the blender. Also used honey instead of sugar. Topped the salad with shreds of asiago cheese. Yum. Read More
