Strawberry-Basil-Lime Vinaigrette

Strawberry-Basil-Lime Vinaigrette recipe
I usually try to make my own salad dressing because if you've looked at the ingredients on a bottle of dressing lately you'll probably see words that don't even look like they would be food, most likely because they're chemicals (yuck!).  So I opt to keep it fresh with homemade dressings that will dress up even just simple mixed greens.

  • 4 strawberries, roughly chopped with stems removed
  • 1 small shallot, roughly chopped
  • 5 basil leaves, roughly chopped or torn
  • 1 lime, juice & zest
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Make it!
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Store in an air tight bottle like this one I found at Fish's Eddy.
