Spicy Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Salad dressings are usual a deal breaker when it comes to a healthy diet. Most people don’t measure out the recommended serving size. Your salad might as well be a burger and fries if you just pour on the dressing.  . Here is a light strawberry vinaigrette recipe with a kick of spice. Although healthier, you should measure out two tablespoons max per salad. It’s filled with fresh herbs, spices and of course sweet strawberries so a little goes a long way. Prepared with extra virgin olive oil, you’re also getting a bit of healthy fats which each serving.

Enjoy.
