To continue this healthy start to 2016, we wanted to make a dinner this week that was light on calories but heavy on flavor. We know salads are healthy for us but sometimes the salad dressing alone turns a nutritious meal in to a calorie packed one instead.
We decided to experiment with making our own salad dressing. We wanted a sweet and savory salad so since the salad itself was full of spinach, chopped bacon, red onions, gorgonzola cheese, and toasted pecans, we wanted our dressing to be on the sweeter side. The result was delicious! The dressing complemented the salad perfectly! We can’t wait to try it on so many other salad creations we come up with this month!
½ a pound of Fresh Brook Hollow Farm Strawberries, rinsed
2 Tbs of apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs of olive oil
2 Tbs of organic honey
¼ tsp of salt
¼ tsp of ground black pepper
Blend all ingredients in a blender until liquefied. Adjust honey, salt, and pepper to taste
Arrange your salad ingredients in a bowl and toss with a few tablespoons of the strawberry vinaigrette
**Don’t forget an extra cup of sliced Brook Hollow Farm strawberries to top it all off!
