The strawberries

The best strawberries to use in this salad dressing are those that are at their most ripe and most flavourful. However, this doesn’t mean they have to be the biggest or look the prettiest. This recipe is great to use up the uglier strawberries or bird pecked ones that you don’t want to eat fresh.

In summer, strawberries can be at their best, juicy and sweet, but in the cooler months, frozen strawberries will trump the fresh ones.

Frozen strawberries are usually frozen at their peak ripeness and sweetness.

Equipment

A blender is needed to create a smooth dressing. I use an immersion blender (stick blender.)

Step by step instructions

Firstly, preheat the oven to 200°C/392°F. Secondly, hull and slice up the strawberries for the dressing. Lay them on a lightly greased or lined baking tray.

Bake for around 15 minutes until juicy and starting to caramelise. Let them cool down completely.

Thirdly, add the cooled strawberries to a jar and add the rest of the dressing ingredients. Lastly, blend it together using a stick blender until creamy. Taste and add more salt or sweetness as needed.

Leftover dressing can be stored in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to a week.
