Recently, I attended a wedding and the salad was served with a fresh, tangy strawberry dressing that I instantly fell in love with and of course, had to make!
This dressing is the epitome of smooth California flavor. It’s clean and not overly sweet, all while being possibly the easiest thing to make on the planet.
You can use it on any salad combination or even on a bowl full of berries.
You may even be tempted to eat it by the spoonful! *raises hand*
