5 Ingredient Berry Vinaigrette

Berry Vinaigrette has 5 ingredients, it is super delicious, and super healthy! I love having the peace of mind knowing exactly what is going into my body and if we timed it, I bet it would take less than a minute longer to whip up your own dressing than to open a bottle of dressing from the store.

Feel free to adjust the recipe to your liking! If you are not a huge fan of blueberries, then leave them out. Or if you like your dressing on the sweeter side, add a bit more honey. I promise it is worth the effort to learn and make your own healthy salad dressings!

All of the ingredients in this salad are just so lovely combined together. I especially love the fresh strawberries, they just remind me of hot summer days and warmth! During the winter in the prairies, we turn into the frozen tundra, so obviously there are no fresh strawberries growing outside. Fresh strawberries have always symbolized summer to me because when I was a little girl we would harvest fresh strawberries in the summer in my grandmas garden.

The goat cheese, chicken, and pumpkin seeds provide a whole bunch of protein and nutrition.
