This Strawberry Salad Dressing is made from very easy to find ingredients and is perfect for all your summer salads!
Strawberry Salad Dressing is easy to make and is the perfect addition to so many different salads. I love this on my Strawberry Bacon Salad, but it would be perfect over so many different combinations of greens and fruit.
How to Make Strawberry Salad Dressing
- Blend fresh strawberries. In a food processor or blender, combine fresh strawberries that have the greens removed and have been cut in half with orange juice, red onion, honey, and salt.
- Slowly blend in the olive oil.
- Taste and adjust seasonings. Depending on how you like your dressing you may want to add more honey or salt. Both can help in balancing the tartness in this recipe.
- Add in poppy seeds. Remove the dressing from the blender, and transfer it into the container you will store it in. Add in the poppy seeds and shake to combine.
Do I have to add honey?
No! If you are watching your sugar intake, skip the honey. Depending on the ripeness of the strawberries, it might not be as sweet as you’d like, so you can always add in a sugar substitute like monk fruit.
Can I use frozen strawberries?
Yes! This is a great place to use frozen strawberries. Just thaw them before blending everything together, and cut back on the amount of orange juice you use to 1/4 cup.
Do I have to add poppy seeds?
Definitely not. I love altering salad dressings to my liking. That is half the fun of making them at home.
