Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. very ripe strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups burgundy vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 cup honey

Directions

Clean the strawberries and place in a blender jar. Add the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper and process until smooth. Add the honey while the blender is running and process until well blended. Pour into a covered container. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend.

Hint: This dressing tastes wonderful on leafy green salads. Be sure to use very ripe strawberries, ones that are too mushy to eat whole, for the best flavor. You may want to adjust the amount of honey added to the dressing depending on how sweet your strawberries taste. This will keep in the refrigerator for at least 1 week. It may also be frozen and then defrosted for later use. To thicken this dressing slightly, stir in 2 teaspoons guar gum until well mixed. Let rest for several hours to achieve desired thickness.
