I had been fascinated with homemade salad dressing but I never got the chance to make my own yet, until last weekend. I had been introducing a lot of vegetables and salad in my meals and all the time I used store-bought dressing for my salad. I don’t use any fancy dressing anyway, I like light dressing like vinaigrette dressing or Asian dressing but that was not always the case. I used to love creamy based dressing like caesar, ranch, thousand island etc. and I cannot even think of even trying vinaigrette dressing. They’re just not as tasty to me as the cream based dressing but that was all in the past, I love simple vinaigrette dressing now. In fact, I used them a lot more than cream based dressing. Now a days, if I want a cream based dressing, I go for yogurt dressing. There’s so many variations now, they have ranch, caesar and thousands island dressing just a healthier version of the regular creamy based dressing.
I decided to finally give homemade salad dressing a chance. I personally find it exciting as I can make my own variation and used fresh ingredients and no preservatives at all. I already know that I will be making a lot of it and today making this Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing is just the start or many more homemade salad dressing to come.
5 Ingredients, that’s all to it
Homemade salad dressing is very easy to make, and it doesn’t require too much ingredients too. You will need a kitchen blender to start with, a small food chopper works well too although its more convenient to use a blender. It doesn’t have to be a fancy blender; you can use the single serve smoothie blender anything capable of making a puree for fruits. Dump all the ingredients in the blender and process until the texture is smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Just like that! This strawberry vinaigrette has a very nice sweet and sour fresh fruit flavor and it is great for almost any kind of salad. Let me show you quickly how to make it. Let’s get started!
- 1 cup Strawberry (measured after chopping into small pieces)
- 4 tbsp Olive oil
- 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar or Rice Vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 5 tsp honey (Can be increased for a sweeter taste)
Put everything in a blender or mini processor. Process or blend until smooth. Taste and adjust as needed. You can add more honey if you prefer a sweeter dressing. Transfer into a jar or salad bottle. Keep refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
Makes about 1 cup
That’s about it, so simple. Give it a try. Guaranteed you will love it.
