Recipe FAQ + Tips
How to store? This dressing can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Can I use Frozen Strawberries? You can use fresh or frozen berries for this recipe. If you are using frozen berries, allow them to thaw before blending so the juices can help bind and flavor the dressing.
Balance the flavor: Making your own dressing means you have control over the flavor. If the flavor is too tart, simply add some extra honey or maple syrup. If the flavor is too sweet, then add a bit of vinegar.
