Strawberry Rhubarb Vinaigrette Salad Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #homemade #salad #dressing

Hurrah it’s finally spring … my favorite things in the spring are the spring flowers and rhubarb and asparagus … and spring salads. Oh I love a good salad. And I love a good homemade salad dressing.

The past couple days have been chilly. I’ll be glad when we get back to spring temps … then I’ll want another spring berry salad. With this heavenly dressing. It’s strawberry rhubarb pie in a salad dressing. It dresses up a spring salad so perfectly.

Strawberry Rhubarb Vinaigrette

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups of dressing

Strawberry Rhubarb Vinaigrette

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups mixed chopped strawberries & rhubarb (2/3 cup fruit with juices after cooking)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • A few fresh basil leaves
  • A small slice of fresh ginger root
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Put the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and vanilla in a small saucepan and stir. Let sit for about 15 minutes so the strawberry and rhubarb juices start to appear. Cook over medium heat for about 10 - 15 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the rhubarb is just getting tender (but before it falls apart completely).
  2. Put 2/3 cup of the strawberry rhubarb mixture (with juices!) in a handi chopper or blender with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Let cool before using on a salad. Store any unused dressing in an airtight container in the fridge.
