Paleo Strawberry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing


Looking to up your spring salad game? This paleo strawberry vinaigrette salad dressing recipe is exactly what you need to bring a spring fruitiness, to the table. It’s easy to make, with a delightful combination of sweet and tangy.

I really love vinaigrette salad dressing. It started with Marie’s raspberry vinaigrette, which you can get in the refrigerated section of most grocery stores.

It’s really delicious, and goes great with both spinach and kale.

But good gracious, it’s expensive, and not only that, while the ingredients are definitely much higher quality than cheap salad dressings, let’s face it, homemade is always gonna beat a printed ingredient label.

And in this case, using raw apple cider vinegar, and raw honey is pretty hard to beat for nutrition.

So, to make my commitment to eat a big bowl of dark leafy greens every day even better, it was time to make my own.  Because y’all, I love homemade ranch dressing (and variations of ranch), and it will always be my favorite salad dressing on lettuce salads, it’s just not quite the same on kale.

Nobody wants to massage ranch dressing into kale leaves.

 The raspberry vinaigrette I mentioned buying before is delicious, but the closest thing to raspberries I had on hand when I ran out of Marie’s was strawberries.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and boy am I glad necessity arose in this case, because the paleo strawberry vinaigrette is so, so good!

I feel really good about eating because it literally contains four ingredients – strawberries, with a little bit of vinegar, honey, and olive oil.

It doesn’t get much cleaner than that!

My favorite way to use it is on kale or spinach with walnuts (a must have!), feta cheese, and if I’m feeling indulgent, dried cranberries. It’s just the right amount of tart mixed with fruity sweetness. So good!

Other great toppings that pair will with this paleo strawberry vinaigrette salad dressing are sliced strawberries (of course), blueberries, and mandarin oranges. If you haven’t tried putting fruit in your salad, you’re missing out – do it!
