Who wants to turn on their oven during a summer heat wave? Not us!
Now, salad can get boring, but it definitely does not have to, especially not when July has gifted us with an abundance of early blueberries. They’re practically falling off the bushes right now, begging to be picked and savored. Big, plump blueberries add a burst of sweetness to any number of delicious summer salads.
But the small, slightly tart blueberries found this early in July lend themselves to something even more versatile: a blueberry balsamic vinaigrette. It couldn’t be easier to whip up – and you can use it to dress virtually any salad. Try it on spinach with beets and goat cheese and almonds, or double up on the “blue” with blue cheese and walnuts over kale. Make it a filling meal by adding chicken or salmon.
This recipe will provide enough to keep a jar in the fridge for a couple weeks. That way you can whip it out whenever the heat demands a cool, refreshing, oven-free meal that’s anything but boring.
Here’s the formula:
Simply add everything except the oil to a blender and puree, then add the oil and whiz until fully emulsified.
