My Strawberry Vinaigrette Recipe has fresh lemon juice, poppy seeds and a touch of honey. It's the perfect homemade salad dressing for summer!
The bright, refreshing flavors of this gluten-free salad dressing will liven up any salad. I love serving it with a salmon, strawberry, green bean and feta salad from my March meal plans (pictured). Bibb lettuce also pairs well with the strawberry and lemon flavors for a delicate salad. Or try frisee, chicory or other bitter greens for something with more depth. Crumbled blue cheese makes an excellent garnish as well.
