Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

As priorly warned I’m currently obsessed with blueberries because they are in season and I can pick them at a super cute farm that’s close to my house (excited face!).  While my brother and sister-in-law were visiting I made a balsamic vinaigrette with blueberries to use up the rest of the blueberries I had on hand. This dressing is super quick and really dresses up the table with a simple home-maker look 😉

Ingredients:

1 Cup Fresh Blueberries

1 Lemon 

1/4 C. Balsamic Vinegar

3T. Local Honey (add an extra Tablespoon if blueberries are tart)

1/4 t. Sea Salt (I use Pink Himalayan salt)

1t. Dijon Mustard

1/2 C. Olive Oil 

 

Directions:

Wash blueberries and place them in a blender or food processor (a bowl and immersion blender work too!) with the vinegar, oil, salt, honey, and olive oil. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice by hand into bowl. Remove seeds and add to mix-blend until smooth. Store in refrigerator. Best served at room temperature, stir before serving.

I used some feta, blueberries, and pine nuts over a nice spring mix. It was simple and delicious!
