      This is my own creation for strawberry vinaigrette dressing. It's not overly sweet; just a bit on the tangy side. To make the dressing, I used home-cooked strawberry jams that I've made myself. I did not add much vegetable oil. I don't care for dressings that state to add a lot of oil. This one balances out very well.

      Cindi's Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

      9 tablespoons strawberry jam (*See note)
      4-1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, or rice vinegar
      1 tablespoon vegetable oil
      1 teaspoon sugar
      1/16 teaspoon salt (or just a pinch)
      additional add in: 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds (optional)


      In a bowl, jar, or a glass measuring cup, add all the above ingredients; mix by stirring with a spoon.

      If desired, add a 1/2 teaspoon of poppy seeds to the dressing; stir to mix.

      Serve dressing immediately with your favorite salad fixings, or refrigerate until ready to serve.

      This almost makes 1 cup of dressing (about 7/8's of a cup).

      *Note: When I prepared this vinaigrette dressing, I originally used a home-cooked strawberry jam, which I had prepared with a light powdered pectin, SURE JELL (in the pink box), but today I made this dressing using Ball Instant Fruit Pectin, it's a no-cooked strawberry jam. Both are great for this recipe.

      Additional note: I enjoy this dressing served over a bed of spinach, along with chopped smoked honey-turkey deli meat, hard boiled egg slices, and chunks of fresh pineapple. I've also enjoyed this served with a mixture of red lettuce, leafy green lettuce, fresh blueberries, canned pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, slices of red onion, and pecan halves. And today I enjoyed the dressing over baby romaine lettuce, along with mandarin oranges, canned pineapple chunks, and sliced almonds.

      Naiwen, the salad is quite delish, as is the dressing.
