Last week I got all excited about the prospect of summer. The sun was shining, the air was crisp, and by golly, I was in a t-shirt.
And the only thing better than summer in a t-shirt is sweatpants and red wine.
Classic life combinations.
Do you know what summer does to me? Well 2 things, usually.
1) It’s hot, so I want to eat cold things.
2) I want to drink in the sunshine.
The second one has nothing to do with this post, I just thought you should know. I get that you’re probably surprised. Yea. Whitney and Booze.
Any way – about eating cold things – lots of times, those things are healthy. I know that’s also weird for you to hear.
But this strawberry vinaigrette makes eating a salad, no to sad.
I call them Sad-lads. because who is happy to eat a salad? Just try this vinaigrette though, I promise you’ll like it. Even on greens.
Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 cups fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Place the strawberries in a food processor.
Process until pureed. Add lemon juice and sugar; cover and process until blended.
While the food processor is still going, gradually add vinegar and oil in a steady stream; process until thickened.
So pour that on something green, preferably something with goat cheese in it, and liven up your sad-lads.
