This vinaigrette is so good, you might find yourself eating it by the spoonful. Fresh, homegrown strawberries are ready everywhere right now in Minnesota. You can go pick them at a farm, or find some at your local farmers market.

Skip store bought dressing and give this homemade vinaigrette a try!

This easy dressing has so many amazing flavors. The fresh strawberries, balsamic vinegar and rosemary are such a delicious flavor combo.

Throw everything in the food processor or blender and in less than 10 minutes, you'll have a homemade vinaigrette ready for a salad.

I especially love this dressing on a spinach salad, but it's also super delicious in a pasta salad. You can also serve it as a sauce with some grilled chicken or fish.
