This homemade Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette will brighten up any salad! Inspired by the Zupas strawberry harvest salad!
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 want a nice drizzle without all of the teeny tiny strawberry seeds so a quality mixer is key.
Add thawed frozen strawberries ti you blender.
Squeeze in lemon juice for a nice citrus flavor and to kick down the sweetness.
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.
