Spring seems to finally be here, and with that comes strawberry season! This recipe for a Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette from Tasty Kitchen member Jamie Levine caught my eye for its beautiful color and creamy texture. It will brighten up even the simplest of salads.

Start by rinsing the strawberries and slicing the tops off.

Turn the blender on and slowly drizzle in the olive oil, blending until fully incorporated. If the mixture doesn’t blend to a smooth consistency easily, simply add a few tablespoons of water until it does.

The mixture will be emulsified and creamy and the most beautiful color. You can then pass it through a strainer or leave it as it is. It was smooth enough for me so I skipped that step.

This is a wonderful dressing for spring when the strawberries are plump and ripe. It will brighten up the simplest looking salad and will also store well in the refrigerator.

Try it this spring—you will love it. And thank you to Jamie for this wonderful, silky smooth dressing. Visit her website Green Beans & Grapefruit for some other amazing recipes!

Great recipe, especially with 1/4 of honey added.

I made this for our salad Sunday night and it was delicious! I had to substitute white vinegar for half of the balsamic since I ran out, but it was still a very tasty vinaigrette.
