  • 1/2-1 bunch cilantro destemmed
  • 1 medium hass avocado
  • salt and pepper

Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

  • 1 cup quartered strawberries

  • 3 tbsp olive oil extra virgin


The base

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain, and set aside

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pasta, strawberries, red onion, and as much cilantro as you would like. If this isn't being served immediately, cover the pasta salad base and store at this step. 

  3. To create the dressing, combine the dressing ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Adjust the flavor to taste, adding more agave for a sweeter taste or more balsamic vinegar for a tang. 

  4. When reader to serve, add diced avocado and drizzle dressing on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
