Strawberry Lemon Dressing
This vinaigrette will be tasteless unless made with ripe strawberries. It looks a lovely deep pinky red color. If you find the dressing a little tart, add a sugar in small amounts until you get the taste you like. I serve it with grilled, sliced chicken over arugula with slices of cucumber and a few strawberries also cut into slices – great for a summer lunch outside (maybe accompanied by a chilled Rose wine).
8 oz ripe strawberries
1/2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Puree the strawberries in a food processor, then add lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.
