This was an experiment with tonight’s dinner. A delicious experiment. I was going for a more classic blueberry vinaigrette, but what I ended up with was a thick and velvety dressing that was bursting with blueberry flavour. You gotta love it when kitchen ‘accidents’ turn out better than whatever it was you had planned in the first place.
My Blueberry Balsamic Salad Dressing
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Sea salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 clove minced garlic
- 1 tsp honey
Combine everything in blender and let run until thickened and combined. This dressing will really thicken up and can get almost mousse-like if you let it sit. Add a few drops more oil and pulse if you need to thin it out.
Did you ever start making one thing in the kitchen and end up with something else that turned out to be a new favorite? I’d love to hear about your most delicious ‘oops’ 🙂
