Salad With Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Salad With Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

‘Tis strawberry season here in the South so I have a ‘crazy good’ family favorite for you which is perfect for this time of year…

This side dish is a delicious compliment to any meal!

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 2 -3 teaspoons strawberry jam (I use homemade freezer jam)
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • Salt/Pepper to taste

Place jam and vinegar in a bowl and whisk.  Pour EVOO in slowly and continue to whisk vigorously.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This is best made ahead of time so the flavors can get’ all married up and everything’.     🙂   Make a double batch of this vinaigrette so you can have a salad for lunch the next day.  You will want to – it is that good!!!

Garden Fresh Salad

  • Mixed baby spring greens
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  • Roasted walnuts (optional)
  • Gorgonzola cheese (optional)

Use greens of your choice – we prefer mixed baby spring greens from our garden on the front lawn.  Pour vinaigrette over greens and toss gently.  Add roasted walnuts and gorgonzola if desired (we DESIRE big time – such a great combination of flavors!).  Spread sliced strawberries over the top of the greens.

Serve and enjoy!
