Our strawberry vinaigrette recipe is made with fresh strawberries, sweet honey, red wine vinegar, and fresh roasted garlic. It comes together in just 5 minutes. It’s sweet and tart and compliments lettuce salads perfectly. Gluten-free.
I love a good strawberry dressing. This summer, take the time to try out this simple homemade strawberry dressing that’s perfect for a strawberry salad.
This dressing is super simple to make. You’ll need a carton of fresh strawberries, some roasted garlic, and a midwestern lettuce mix (spinach works great too!).
You’re going to LOVE it. A perfect summer salad that takes no time at all.
The only time-consuming portion of this recipe is to make the roasted garlic if you want to make it from scratch. It only takes 30 minutes. Learn how to make roasted garlic on the grill or in the oven.
If you’re not up to roasting garlic you have a few options. You can simply use fresh garlic or you can skip the garlic altogether.
How To Make
Add all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Puree until well blended.
Taste test the dressing to see if it’s sweet enough and has enough salt and garlic. Adjust if needed.
Once pureed the dressing is ready to serve.
I love the easy salad I put together below which consisted of a lettuce blend, sliced strawberries, and a handful of pecans. I added the dressing and had a delicious summer salad!
This strawberry dressing would also be delicious on a spinach salad with feta, sliced strawberries, and slivered almonds. The options are endless!

I had strawberries going bad so I made this dressing with them. So easy and really good on a spinach salad.
