Blueberry Dressing Ingredients

4 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries

2 ounces cider vinegar

4 ounces canola oil

juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon Whole grain or ground mustard seed

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Blend all ingredients except the oil. Add oil slowly while mixing (a food processor works well). The dressing is best when made a day ahead of time. Mix well before serving. Serve over a mixed green salad with feta cheese, blue berries, and toasted pecans.

Other uses for Blueberry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

1. Drizzle over veggies before you bake them.

2. Use as a marinade for meats.

3. Sauté meat or veggies in vinaigrette instead of oil.

Tip: Canola Oil will keep homemade dressing from solidifying in the fridge versus olive oil. Dressings will mix back together after a short time at room temperature.

It's very easy to create your own homemade vinaigrette salad dressing and this delicious treat takes only moments to whip up. Simply blend together a few ingredients and serve over your salad or use as a marinade. Vinaigrette recipes are among the easiest and most healthy salad dressings. Homemade salad dressings are typically healthier for you than commercial dressings as they are less fat and made without corn syrup, excess salt, preservatives, artificial flavors, or partially hydrogenated oils or trans-fats. Sweet and flavorful, this dressing goes well on many different salad greens, slaws and fruit salads.
