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.

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

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
