The secret to this salad dressing is of course really fresh, ripe strawberries. Increase the amount as much as desired, this will keep refrigerated for at least a week.
- 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled
- 1 tsp balsamic
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp mint leaves cut into thin ribbons
In a blender add strawberries, sugar, salt and balsamic. Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and whisk in olive oil. Add mint and refrigerate for two hours before serving.
