While at the blueberry festival, we usually get a bite to eat. The food is what you typically find at outdoor summer festivals: drinks, plenty of ice cream, desserts, water and hotdogs. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to have a refreshing tossed salad featuring blueberries and blueberry vinaigrette?
Yields: 2 cups (16oz.) dressing
1 1/2 cups Blueberries
1/3 cup olive oil + 1/3 cup canola oil OR 2/3 cup Smart Balance oil blend
1 tablespoon (T) rice vinegar (can also use apple cider or red wine vinegar)
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 T Agave or Honey
2 teaspoons (tsp) coarse ground mustard
2 tsp fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 tsp minced or grated ginger
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup water (or more if necessary to thin as desired)
Putting it all together
- Rinse blueberries and remove any stems.
- Add all ingredients to blender and mix.
- Pour into washed and sanitized dressing bottle or cruet.
