Two of my favorites combined! I don't see how anyone could not love the aroma of fresh basil leaves. The sweet/tart flavor of fresh Springtime strawberries is something I look forward to each year as well. This easy salad dressing mixes up quickly in the blender. It's perfect for the Spinach and Strawberry Salad.
To really ramp up the flavor of this salad dressing, I used both fresh strawberries and basil along with a basil infused olive oil and a strawberry balsamic vinegar. Click on the links below to take you King's Olive Oil's website.
1 cup chopped strawberries
10 - 12 fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup Basil Olive Oil
1/3 - 1/2 cup Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar
2 T. Dijon mustard
1 t. salt
1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper
1 T. Agave Nectar
1/2 t. poppy seeds
Taste and add additional vinegar for a little extra zing, if desired.
