Strawberry & Mint Salad Dressing

Strawberries are most often thought of for desserts or other sweet dishes. However, this strawberry recipe is a salad dressing that will refresh and satisfy. I like to use it with a slightly bitter green like arugula for a perfect flavor combination.


  • 1 cup hulled strawberries
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 4 tbsp olive oil or other oil of choice
  • 2 tbsp sugar, agave, honey or sweetener of choice
  • salt & pepper to taste


In a blender, blend the strawberries and sweetener until pulpy. Add balsamic vinegar, oil and mint leaves. Blend until mint leaves are fully diced. Add salt and pepper and adjust ingredients to your taste preference. Let sit one-two hours to give flavors a chance to fully meld!
