Strawberry Salad Dressing

Light and sweet, this salad dressing is easy to make. I love it served over leafy greens with fresh strawberries, blueberries, candied pecans and feta cheese.

1 clove garlic
1/8 slice of a small purple onion
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup strawberries
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup extra light olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon poppyseeds

Place all ingredients (except poppyseeds) into a blender. Blend until entirely pureed. Stir in poppyseeds. Serve immediately over your favorite salad.

Or.. you may like to try this Medjool Date Salad.

8 oz. fresh Medjool dates
8 oz. mixed greens or romaine lettuce
4 oz. feta cheese

Remove pits from Medjool dates and cut into quarters. Then cut each one more time to make 8 "cubes" per date. Combine dates with greens, feta cheese and Strawberry Salad Dressing and toss.
