This strawberry delight is healthy, flavorful and super simple to make. It goes great on any spring or summer salad, especially one with fruit. My favorite is a spinach salad with strawberries, green apples, crasins, red onions and toasted or candied nuts. Plus, it's low calorie. While there is a time a place for a calorie loaded steak and blue cheese salad (um, yum), it's nice to have go to dressings that are tasty and low cal, especially with summer around the corner, Time to get your sexy back . . . .
**A little trick for this dressing is using prepackaged frozen strawberries. If you let them sit out and thaw, they get extra concentrated with their own juice and flavor and it really creates a bolder strawberry flavor.
