Strawberry Vinaigarette Salad Dressing Recipe

Sweet, Tart, Delicious, and Perfect for Spring! #DressingItUp

Oh Spring is finally here!  I LOVE Spring!!!  The weather is finally warm, the flowers are blooming, the produce is fresh and flavorful, and it’s strawberry season!

Every year we go to a local farm and go strawberry picking.  It’s so much fun!  I think Little Man eats more strawberries out in the field than he collects….it’s like Trick or Treating for him but healthier!  I love fresh picked strawberries– they’re packed full of flavor and oh so yummy!  Did you know that as soon as a strawberry is picked off the vine it stops the ripening process?  So make sure you don’t pick any that aren’t bright red….that’s when they’re the sweetest!

And with strawberries comes fresh produce season!  It’s the perfect season for making delectable salads and when you have a delectable salad you, of course, need a delectable salad dressing!  I prefer making my own salad dressing….not only is it fun, easy, yummy, and fresh but VERY cost effective too!
