“B” is for Blueberry Vinaigrette

Despite the disappearance of sunshine in Portland, I’m still eating salad like it’s the middle of summer. Today I decided to make some vinaigrette for a raw kale salad that is on tonight’s dinner menu. The last of my frozen (hand-picked) summer blueberries disappeared into a massive smoothie last week but I really wanted blueberries in my salad dressing. What to do, what to do… As luck would have it, there are still a few jars of homemade blueberry jam in my pantry! So, I whipped up a blueberry vinaigrette in a matter of minutes. It is tangy, fruity, and simply delicious. I have yet to toss it with kale and sliced almonds, but I know it will be tummy pleasing :)

Easy Blueberry Vinaigrette

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons blueberry jam (my jam is very low in sugar, but use whatever you prefer)
Small pinch of salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a glass jar. Put on the lid, and shake, shake, shake! Store in the fridge.

  1. I’m not really one to mix sweet things in with my salads, but this sounds pretty good. I’m kinda glad the sun is going away and the cooler weather is coming, though we did have a short lived summer here in Seattle. I do eat salads in both warm and cold weather. They’re just too good!
    I will have to try this dressing some time.

  2. I am not giving up on the salads this winter! Your dressing sounds great, I’m gonna give it a go with some of the jam I have hanging abooot.

    Good luck tomorrow!!
