This gorgeous, delicious dressing made with blueberries is a must try
This dressing is absolutely stunning. Put this on a plate at your next dinner party and you are sure to impress.
Blueberries, balsamic, and dijon come together quickly and easily using a Vitamix (or any blender, really).
It’s healthy, it’s free from additives, it’s bright (in color and in taste), and your guests will ooo and ahh. What could be better?
Homemade dressing is always the star
We host our fair share of dinner parties. Without fail, our homemade dressings are the most requested recipes.
Part of me wants to say, but didn’t you try my veggie tort? Inevitably I end up writing 4-5 ingredients on a Post-It note and getting this response: “that’s it?”
Yes, that’s it. The most delicious thing you ate at my house was the easiest to make.
I guess that means nothing is stopping you from being the host/ess with the most/ess. Just make sure you’ve got a fancy salad and some homemade dressing!
Useful tips for Bright Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
You can serve this dressing on pretty much any salad. We chose to dress spinach, quinoa, beets, slivered almonds, and dried blueberries. It was divine (and very very pretty).
Note: This is a pretty dijon-heavy recipe. If you’re not a huge fan, use half the amount.
Want a really bright color? Use white balsamic vinegar instead of the traditional black. Same flavor, less sullying of the blueness.
