Strawberry Vinaigrette


We're on Spring Break in Palm Springs (which totally explains why I have posted two days in a row) and strawberries are fully in season here.  They are red, ripe, delicious and most  importantly abundant!  We made a salad for dinner and I thought to make a fresh dressing.  After googling several recipes for strawberry vinaigrettes - many of them included ingredients like dijon mustard, strawberry jam, or poppy seeds.  Not being satisfied with my options, I ventured out on my own and went for pure and simple.

Strawberries
Olive Oil
Red Wine Vinegar
A bit of Sugar

Of course, it doesn't hurt that the strawberries alone are divine and so distinctly fresh in flavor.  But this was so good and easy.  I blended it all in about 30 seconds with a Magic Bullet (adding that to my kitchen gadget want list). Next time I think I'll try it with Balsalmic Vinegar.

I just bought a Magic Bullet last month! Great idea - will try. And I think the white island totally works.
