“This vinaigrette dressing is not overly sweet; just a bit on the tangy side. So far I've only used home-cooked strawberry jams that I've made myself, to make this dressing. Not much vegetable oil is needed. I don't care for dressings that state to add a lot of oil. This one balances out very well.”
7/8 cup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 9 tablespoons strawberry jam (*See note)
  • 4 12 tablespoons white wine vinegar or 4 12 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 116 teaspoon salt (or just a pinch)
  • additional add in - 1/2 teaspoon poppy seed (optional)


  1. In a bowl, jar, or a glass measuring cup, add all the above ingredients; mix by stirring with a spoon.
  2. If desired, add a 1/2 teaspoon of poppy seeds to the dressing; stir to mix.
  3. Serve dressing immediately with your favorite salad fixings, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. This almost makes 1 cup of dressing (about 7/8's of a cup).
  5. *Note: When I prepared this vinaigrette dressing, I originally used a home-cooked strawberry jam, which I had prepared with a light powdered pectin, SURE JELL (in the pink box), but today I made this dressing using Ball Instant Fruit Pectin, it's a no-cooked strawberry jam. Both are great for this recipe.
  6. I enjoy this dressing served over a bed of spinach, along with chopped smoked honey-turkey deli meat, hard boiled egg slices, and chunks of fresh pineapple. I've also enjoyed this served with a mixture of red lettuce, leafy green lettuce, fresh blueberries, canned pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, slices of red onion, and pecan halves. And today I enjoyed the dressing over baby romaine lettuce, along with mandarin oranges, canned pineapple chunks, and sliced almonds.
