Strawberry Vinaigrette

There is something to be said for
a good salad with a nice meal.
Often times I will make a nice
salad to go with dinner but I don't spend
any time on dressing - other than taking the
bottle out of the frig and placing it on the table.

Tonight I decided to go the extra mile
and actually make the salad dressing!
The thing about salad dressing - I think- is
that you can't necessarily depend on the
measurements as much as you have to taste
it and see what it needs.
You know~ a little of this and a pinch of that~!

Strawberry Vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 pint strawberries,
washed and tops cut off
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar

Combine oil, berries, vinegar, salt, pepper,
and sugar in food processor.
Process in blender until berries are pureed.
Stir before using.

* Remember don't get hung up on the recipe
Taste the dressing and see what it needs*

Now doesn't that look good!

I was lucky enough to have dinner at S's house last time she made this dressing and it was awesome! It elevated a lovely salad into a divine salad.

I tried the vinagrette, it's delicious with honeydew melon and cantelope.
