We are in the peak season for berries here in Ontario. Farmer’s market and grocery stores are loaded with beautiful red, blue, and orange berries. It is the perfect time to whip up some strawberry dressing for salad!
In North America, the hunter gatherer tribes gathered berries because they were abundant, naturally sweet, and easy to dry for later use. Some Iroquois tribes gathered up to a dozen varieties. The bottom line is if a berry didn’t make them sick, they ate it. Our ancestors knew best!
Today we know that blueberries for example have 4 times more antioxidants than other fruits. Wild blueberries have 100X more nutrition than regular blueberries! Strawberry are very high in Vitamin C and anthocyanin which have anti-viral properties.
Most of us are used to eat our berries as a snack or with our breakfast …. but a strawberry dressing for salad ??? This is by far one of the best dressings I have ever had!
