This creamy strawberry vinaigrette dressing will make just about any salad perfectly flavor balanced, with just a few ingredients. The blender (or food processor) does all the work so it's ready in just 5 minutes.
Place all of the ingredients in a bowl (if using immersion blender), food processor or blender. My favorite tool for this is a mini food processor. NOTE that the red chili flakes in a small amount will not make the vinaigrette spicy. It is meant as a flavor enhancer.
Run on high for 30 seconds to one minute. The mixture should be smooth and pink.
Taste. If you prefer to remove the strawberry seeds, run the mixture through a fine mesh strainer.
Taste. Adjust the flavors to your preference. Is it missing that vague something? Add a couple of pinches of salt. Do you prefer it more sour? Add 2 tsp of vinegar. More sweet? Ad 2 tsp sweeter? Is it too sour? Add 1 Tbsp oil.
Store this vinaigrette in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for about a week. If it thickens too much after refrigerating, heat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds or leave at room temperature for 1 hour.
Frozen strawberries can be used if thawed.
