Strawberry and Balsamic Binaigrette


  • 500 g (1 lb) ripe strawberries
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • fresh basil – optional


Hull the strawberries and rinse.

Put in a blender goblet with the water, blend and sieve. Whisk in the vinegar and oil, and then season to taste.

I find basil exceptionally good with strawberries, and I would shred some into the vinaigrette before using it.
