Strawberry Dressing

Strawberry Dressing Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com
Thank you everyone for your kind messages on my 100th (previous) post!  I’m glad you enjoyed my “baked” dessert and I do hope that I will be able to make more desserts in the future.

Today I’d like to share a delicious strawberry salad dressing before the strawberry season is over. I know it not quite time yet but we should all enjoy strawberries while they last! When I just started blogging, one of the sites I had found was Peggy’s blog, My FIANCE Likes It, So It MUST Be Good. I can’t remember how many recipes I have bookmarked from her site, and this was one of them. I recently gave it a try and it turned out to be really delicious and our entire family enjoyed it, even the little ones. I pretty much followed her recipe with a slight change, I added one squeeze of lemon and also sprinkle walnuts over the salad. Thanks Peggy for the great recipe!

Happy Father’s Day Weekend everyone!

    Here I am! :)
    This dressing is very particular and interesting! I should try it, before the strawberries season goes off… soon :(

  • Maris(In Good Taste) June 17, 2011, 12:52 am

    Such a simple easy yet delectable dressing! Will become a summer staple in my house!

  • Mr. Three-Cookies June 17, 2011, 2:26 am

    Nice and simple, I will remember this. I had sort of a similar salad with tomato yesterday, I can see how strawberries will blend in nicely, thanks for sharing

  • kat June 17, 2011, 2:39 am

    I think I have to wait until next year to try, strawberry season is over :(

  • Jill Colonna June 17, 2011, 3:50 am

    This is amazing, Nami. Love the dressing, sounds so tangy and a wonderful taste of the start of summer. Love the touch with the walnuts.

  • Kim Beaulieu June 17, 2011, 4:01 am

    All I can say is WOW!

  • Manu June 17, 2011, 5:36 am

    What a fantastic idea! I am a big fan of fruits in salads! But I had never thought of using it as a dressing! Very clever! I have bookmarked it for our strawberry season! ;-) Happy Father’s Day weekend to you guys… in Australia we celebrate in September! ;-)

  • Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen June 17, 2011, 5:55 am

    I’ve never seen a dressing like this and I think it looks just perfect! Yum!

  • Katherine Martinelli June 17, 2011, 7:35 am

    What a beautiful dressing! So nice for summer. I can’t wait to try it.

  • Sonia June 17, 2011, 8:00 am

    I seldom prepare salad and only know to buy from supermarket the ready pack salad. Beside this lovely salad, what other dishes you serve along with this salad ?

  • skip to malou June 17, 2011, 8:21 am

    I love love strawberries… it’s so versatile! you could make it as a smoothie, you could make it as a fruit combo with a dessert, you could have it doled up with cream ahhh luscious cream or you could have it as healthy as your salad… and yeah not to mention the kind of dressing that you have.. it’s a refreshing way to use strawberries. Love it!

  • Beth Michelle June 17, 2011, 8:59 am

    Strawberry salad dressing sounds so so so amazing. I cannot wait for strawberry season to roll around again so I can try this!!

  • Anncoo June 17, 2011, 9:26 am

    I love strawberries too especially the one from Korea. Your strawberries salad looks so pretty and yummy. I going to try this..thanks for sharing Nami :)

  • chinmayie @ love food eat June 17, 2011, 10:06 am

    Beautiful photos Nami! I always love fresh fruits in my salad dressings!

  • Lindsey@Lindselicious June 17, 2011, 10:11 am

    This looks great- i love the color in your photos. How long do you think this dressing keeps for? I have a bunch of strawberries I need to eat that I bought to do various things with, but I’ve been too tired this week. LOL This salad looks so fresh and summery!

  • Tanvi@SinfullySpicy June 17, 2011, 10:15 am

    This sounds like the simplest ever dressing & new to me.I just know what to do with my greens & strawberry box sitting in fridge for 2 days.I usually use up the leftover fruits in baking etc- this dressing idea is so unique — thanks for sharing.Have a lovely weekend!

  • tanja@tanjascookingcorner June 17, 2011, 10:47 am

    This is a fantastic recipe, I will have to try it before the strawberry season is over! Love the addition of lemon and walnuts… Thanks for sharing! Have a good weekend! :)

  • Tina (PinayInTexas) June 17, 2011, 10:56 am

    Strawberries are my favorite…but I haven’t tried using it for dressing! Thanks for the awesome idea, Nami!

  • Christine June 17, 2011, 10:59 am

    Strawberry salad dressing sounds wonderful! Yummy!

  • Sissi June 17, 2011, 12:01 pm

    Nami, I have never had strawberries in a savoury salad (only fruit salads), but both the salad and the sauce are very seducing. The dressing reminds me the hot strawberry sauce I make every year and, if you say it is very good, then it confirms once more the fact that strawberries go very well with the vinegar! I must try your salad before the strawberry season ends.
    On your photos the dressing looks like a strawberry smoothie. Weren’t you tempted to drink it ;-) ? Have a great weekend and have a well merited rest!

  • Adora's Box June 17, 2011, 1:01 pm

    I just love fruits in salads. The sweetness and tang just goes so well with the salad greens. What beautiful photos those are. Perfect plates of salad.

  • Happy When Not Hungry June 17, 2011, 1:02 pm

    This dressing looks delicious and so beautiful!!! Perfect for strawberry season :-)

  • Liz June 17, 2011, 1:51 pm

    Nami, what a simple, beautiful salad! I love a sweet dressing on greens…and the berries just add to my delight!

  • Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts June 17, 2011, 2:13 pm

    Oh this sounds delicious! I love having fruit with my salad. And your pictures are just so bright and perfect!

  • Mika June 17, 2011, 2:25 pm

    This looks good. I wonder if my strawberry crazed boys would actually eat nama-yasai with this dressing on. Maybe I should try this this weekend ; ) Have a great weekend!

  • Cassie @ Bake Your Day June 17, 2011, 4:40 pm

    Sounds so good! We had a similar raspberry dressing recently…so wonderful!

  • Tiffany June 17, 2011, 5:03 pm

    I love Peggy’s recipes and this one is one I have had bookmarked too! You’ve done a great job with it, Nami! That salad looks really refreshing and tasty… And I am sure it was, with that fabulous dressing & those toasted walnuts (not at all optional to me!) Great post!

  • Gourmantine June 18, 2011, 12:54 pm

    Hmmm… This looks too good! I think it would even go perfectly on a steak salad! Thanks for sharing Nami :) Have a good weekend!

  • Cooking Gallery June 18, 2011, 3:10 pm

    Aww, this is so pretty! :D And using strawberries for the dressing as well is a great idea! :D

  • Arudhi@Aboxofkitchen June 19, 2011, 6:43 am

    Strawberry and olive oil??? This is very new to me, but it does look very refreshing! You`re right. We should make the most of the strawberries while they still last :)

  • Karen June 19, 2011, 8:36 am

    Yum! This sounds delicious. I’m still waiting on REALLY good strawberries…I still havne’t been able to get my hands on any. But when I do, I definitely want to make a salad…love berries in savory salads.
    Hope you and your family are enjoying a nice Father’s Day!

  • Lyn June 19, 2011, 9:01 am
