Strawberry Basil Dressing by The Whole Cook vertical

I’ve always loved a big salad loaded with plenty of incredible ingredients. A little olive oil and vinegar drizzled on top and I’m a happy camper.

Then of course sometimes I want a spectacular dressing. This Strawberry Basil Dressing most definitely qualifies. It is spectacular. Really.

I am tempted to guzzle it straight from the bottle. But I don’t. Because restraint, y’all.

A little sweet. Not too sweet.

And THAT COLOR. It’s so dang pretty.

But the best part may just be how simple it is to make. Everything goes straight into the blender! You’ll be ready to devour this dressing in less than 5 minutes. Honestly how could it be any easier than that?

The ingredients are all fresh and healthy because you know that’s how I like it.

Dairy free. Gluten free. Sugar free. Whole30 compliant.

Add this to your salad and you won’t undo all the good you’re doing by eating a salad in the first place.

Give this beautiful dressing a go and make your next salad a little sweeter and a whole lot brighter!

Strawberry Basil Dressing

You'll love this Strawberry Basil Dressing. It's so very creamy it will brighten up any salad! Plus it's Whole30, dairy free, gluten free, and sugar free.


  • 1/2 cup light olive oil, do not use extra virgin
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 ripe strawberries
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Add everything to blender and blend until smooth.
  • Serve over salad!
  • Store any remaining dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


I prefer to use fresh squeezed orange juice. It only takes about a fourth of an orange to get the tablespoon needed for this recipe and it's so much sweeter than using the store bought juice. Worth it every time! Peel and slice the rest of your orange to use in your salad!
