Strawberry Basil Balsamic Dressing. Target’s Archer Farms brand makes a very good strawberry basil balsamic vinegar. I came up with this recipe which is a bit sweeter than the usual balsamic dressing. My Strawberry Basil Balsamic Dressing pairs wonderfully with mixed greens topped with strawberries or beets and goat cheese or blue cheese crumbles. Try your favorites. And add some chopped nuts for an unexpected crunch!
Serve this dressing on my Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Pine Nuts or my Strawberry Almond Goat Cheese Salad!
If you can’t find the Target Archer Farms brand, there are a few other brands on Amazon.com.
