Blueberry Balsamic Dressing

Blueberries offer a bright, bold base for salad dressings.

Bluberries are not just for desserts. In fact, they make perfect additions to salad dressings. This Blueberry Balsamic dressing is filled with the flavor of blueberries, thyme, balsamic vinegar, and honey.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

9 sprigs fresh thyme

3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

3 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tbsp. honey

pinch of salt

6 tbsp. olive oil

Directions

Place all ingredients except for the olive oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Lightly press down on the blueberries as they cook to break them open. Remove the fresh thyme once done.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Whisk in olive oil. You may also blend until smooth to reach desired consistency.

Drizzle dressing over a crunchy chopped summer salad!
