Berry-Balsamic Vinaigrette

The sweet tang of this rosy dressing pairs nicely with nuts, cheese, avocado or grilled chicken breast in a mixed green salad. A full 2 cups of strawberries boost the dressing's vitamin C and fiber, while the olive oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, a healthy fat that fights inflammation and protects against heart disease.
