I have been reading labels like crazy around here... you know it's bad when the kids say,
"Mom! There's soy lecithin in this!"
"Mom, High Fructose Corn Syrup... ugh!"
I'm making food snobs out of my gang.
Not a bad thing I don't think.
So anyhow... even the strawberry vinaigrette dressing at the store is loaded with garbage! SO!
I decided to play around in the kitchen and made a gem of a recipe!
- Olive Oil
- Poppy Seeds (totally optional, but I LOVE them in this!)
Basically to get them ready for the dressing, I take a cup, *ahem* a heaping cup... haha of strawberries and put them in my blender.
A cup of water.
I do have fresh strawberries as well, but my kids are eating them so rapidly, I figured I'd go ahead and use some of my freeze dried ones. If you use fresh, omit the water. Just puree. You could use frozen strawberries as well!
It's a good idea to have things in our pantries. I wouldn't mind having another party to get a few more things.
2 Tablespoons of honey
Turn your blender on and as it begins mixing, pour your 1/4 cup of olive oil in and let it get incorporated very well.
Once you are finished, make room on your very busy and clutter table and pour into a jar. I got some organic lemonade in this one and the jar was perfect for dressings so I washed it up and kept it for this purpose!
Very delicious and so much better for you than those grocery store dressings.
