The Strawberry Vinaigrette:

Avocado oil, fresh strawberries, lemon juice and a little white balsamic combine to make a beautiful, bright pink dressing. So easy, healthy and naturally sweet. (I love this white balsamic and a close runner up is this one)

  1. What a fresh and delicious looking salad. That dressing sounds amazing and simple. I love butter leaf lettuce, I feel like it is under-used. I am pinning this recipe now.

  2. This dressing sounds amazing! Just a question, is it possible to make a bigger batch of the dressing and store it in the fridge? If so how long does it stay good/ how would you go about storing it to keep its freshness?

    • You could, just know it only stays good as long as the strawberries would. I would keep it no more than five-six days, so make sure you’re going to use it. As far as storage just make sure it’s in a sealed container in the fridge. Thanks!
