Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette

This homemade Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette will brighten up any salad! Inspired by the Zupas strawberry harvest salad!

Strawberry champagne vinaigrette

I have been craving a good salad and this recipe was inspired by one of Zupa’s most popular.

This strawberry champagne dressing is sweet, a little tart, and oh-so elegant.

How to make Strawberry Vinaigrette:

Like most of my recipes, I tried to keep this as simple as possible. Let’s walk through the steps…

You will need a high powered blender or food processor for this recipe. Make sure that whatever you use has a little power.

You want a nice drizzle without all of the teeny tiny strawberry seeds so a quality mixer is key.

Strawberry champagne vinaigrette ingredients

Add thawed frozen strawberries ti you blender.

Strawberry champagne vinaigrette lemon juice

Squeeze in lemon juice for a nice citrus flavor and to kick down the sweetness.

strawberries-and-sugar

For this next step, you are going to sprinkle in a little sugar right on top.

Top things off with a dash of champagne vinegar and a bit of olive oil. This really is the secret to this decedent dressing.

Finding the champagne vinegar can be a little tricky. I purchased this bottle off of Amazon but you might be able to find it in a gourmet grocery store. Don’t skip it. It is the star ingredient and adds that flavor you need.

Strawberries and champagne were meant to go together.

Once all of the ingredients are combined give the blender a good mix. Drizzle on your favorite greens and fall in love.

If you want a really decedent treat add some of those candied pecans to your salad.

Can fresh strawberries be used instead of fresh?

I have never tried, but I'm sure they could. I would make sure they are thawed and drained before adding them.

This recipe is perfect! I swapped out the sugar for honey. I found champagne vinegar at my local Publix. The dressing tastes fresh and delicious! Thank you!

My pleasure! Thank you for the great idea of using honey in place of the sugar. I need to try that ASAP!

I followed this exactly and it is SO delicious. Well, I think I did. I didn't measure the lemon juice, but I used all the juice from two small lemons.

For those having trouble finding champagne vinegar, I found it at Williams-Sonoma, a specialty kitchen store.

Thank you so much!

This makes way more than enough for 1 salad right? Do you think it would stay good in the fridge? How long? Thanks for sharing this recipe. Sounds delicious!

Yes. It makes 20 servings at 2 tablespoons each. I'll add that into the recipe.
