Its strawberry season! That means you’ll need a strawberry recipe or two. Picking strawberries is one of my favorite summertime activities, but in CrossFit True fashion I always make it into a competition….who can pick the most. It ends up being a bit on the expensive side and when I get home the act of washing and storing them all can be tedious, but I have strawberries for a long time.
But then what do you do with all those delicious strawberries?
Enter Strawberry Poppy Dressing
The original recipe came from Paleomg, but of course I made some adjustments. This was so delicious it taste similar to a strawberry milkshake.
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- ¼ cup Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 minced garlic clove
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
My strawberries were mighty sweet and thus I omitted the honey.
I was also feeling lazy and didn’t want to peel garlic so I left that out as well.
And finally, I added a bit of water so it wasn’t so thick.
All in all it was still very delicious.
I do have a warning.
You might not want to eat this on a first date or if you don’t have access to a mirror and floss….those little poppy seeds love to get jammed in between the teeth.
