Strawberry Dressing

Dr. Ben Kim

This delicious strawberry vinaigrette is rich in vitamin C and a group of antioxidants called phenols. The unique combination of phenols found in strawberries - headed by anthocyanins and ellagitannins - makes strawberries and this vinaigrette good for protecting you against heart disease, cancer, and chronic inflammation.

8 large strawberries
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup apple cider vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ cup water
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon honey

Blend all ingredients in a strong blender. Add more water if you prefer a lighter consistency. This recipe works just as well if you substitute the strawberries with any other type of berry; blueberries and blackberries work especially well.

We prefer crisp, romaine lettuce over other types of lettuce to eat along with this berry dressing. Enjoy!
