A Delish Dish: Green Salad With Strawberry Balsamic Vingrette Dressing

This is divine and super easy.

You will need:
  • 2 tsps Strawberry Jam - I almost double this. It makes a thicker but yummier dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) -I just used whatever I had in the cabinet
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 6 sliced strawberries
  • 4 cups of chopped romaine or mixed greens of any kind (this time I used baby spinach leaves)

Place the jam in a medium bowl and whisk in the vinegar and the EVOO. Season the dressing with salt and pepper. At this point, I usually stick my chubby finger right into the dressing and do a taste test. If it is too thick, add a little EVOO. If you want a stronger balsamic taste, add more vinegar, more strawberry...you get the idea.

Add the strawberries and greens to the bowl and toss to coat evenly in the dressing and serve!

Lauren's addendum's:
  • I usually double my strawberries.
  • I usually add craisins.
  • Feta cheese and walnuts are also yummy on the salad!
