I know how it goes. You made some of those Strawberry & Chevre Two-Bites for dessert after that Sweet Sausage & Feta Polenta that you devoured for dinner. Suddenly, it’s Thursday and you’re thinking that healthy eating has officially flown out the window. But every day is a new day, a fresh start, a day to embrace what we have versus what we think we need. And what do we have? A lot of strawberries. Still. So, it’s not too late…
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 cup whole fresh strawberries
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon agave
- splash of lemon juice
Extra tip: Get an Italian dressing kit with the bottle from the grocery store (Good Seasons, etc.). The bottles are so pretty and you can keep them for more of your own homemade dressings!
Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend away until as smooth as possible. This recipe also works great with blueberries instead, which are not only tasty, but chock full of antioxidants!
I put this on a fantastic salad made with the following goodies that go unexpectedly well together:
- romaine or spinach or arugula (or all three)
- almonds, walnuts, or peanuts
- shredded Parmesan cheese
Take back your week one day at a time and make a unique and beautiful salad that will have others looking longingly over your shoulder, I promise!
