Strawberry Vinaigrette recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Frozen strawberries, balsamic and rosemary combined to create a delicious salad dressing. You can adjust the sweetness according to your preferences, but I left ours fairly tangy. I served this over a simple Grape and Candied Walnut Salad and it was an excellent pairing.

I have to tell you that I was so excited to try making a strawberry dressing, I started scribbling down ideas for ingredients a couple days ago. I made this meal and later, as I was writing this post, I remembered that my friend, Donna, had made a strawberry salad a while back.

I went to check and see how she had made her dressing and I burst out laughing. My dressing is almost identical to hers! Apparently, my brain had read and retained more than I thought.

Strawberry Vinaigrette

Recipe adapted from and with thanks to The Slow Roasted Italian
Pin Print Review


  • 8 ounces frozen strawberries thawed - I'm sure this would be awesome with fresh berries, but craving them in October meant that frozen berries were the best option this time
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar you can use regular balsamic; however the dressing will be a lovely shade of brown - much like this one
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice I'm sure store bought would work fine as well
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper


  • Layer all ingredients into the blender in the order listed. Puree for a minute or two, until dressing is smooth and thickened.

    Sooooooooo hot here lately (Los Angeles) and this dressing looks like the perfect accompaniment to any light and fresh salad. Perfection

    That is crazy, only difference was I used more honey. I say, great minds think alike! I really like the color, I think I will try the white balsamic next time. Sprouts or Trader Joe's?? OMG, I just realized it is October, lady fingers will be in soon… I guess I am going to Trader Joe's to get those so I will look for Balsamic there.

    Thanks for the recipe! I made this tonight and it was well received. I even had strawberry flavored balsamic in the pantry

    I am looking for a dressing to put over a mixed leaf salad, with candied walnuts, pear and blue cheese, and possibly some citrus slices. Do you think this would work? or could you suggest an alternative? Thank you.

    I tried this recipe as a test tonight and it came out perfectly! I'll be bringing it along to my (Canadian) Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow 🙂
