Delicious Strawberry Dressing for Summer

When you add fresh produce – fruit included – salads can become a nutritional goldmine. This strawberry dressing is perfect for any light summer salad because it provides lots of antioxidants from the strawberries. Add on healthy fats and vitamin E from sunflower seeds, and folate and vitamin A when drizzled on a bed of arugula. Yum!
