Homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe

I was too excited to find fresh homegrown strawberries at my farmer's market this past weekend! We had such a cold spring, the fruits and veggies are running a little behind this year! I also found some fresh spinach, which was delicious! You can find a recipe using the spinach, strawberries and this vinaigrette in this Wednesday's post! Keep an eye out!

Balsamic is one of my favorite foodie flavors. I love using it in pasta, salads and sides! I don't like buying store bought vinaigrette unless I have to because homemade has no icky ingredients and tastes ten times better! This recipe is so wonderful. The strawberries add a delicious flavor and I love the taste of rosemary in it as well. I may or may not have been eating it by the spoonful! :)
