In August I made some our own blueberries to make a Blueberry Vinegar. It was an easy process basically combining blueberries, vinegar and basil in a glass bowl and stirring every other day for about four weeks. The result was a beautiful colored vinegar which I then used to mix up a blueberry basil dressing. A perfect dressing for a summer salad.

Blueberry Basil Dressing


1 clove of garlic
1 Tbsp fresh basil
2 Tbsp Blueberry-Basil Vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp of Dijon mustard
1 tsp sugar
The zest of ½ lemon


In a blender combine the garlic, basil, blueberry vinegar, olive oil, mustard, sugar and lemon zest. Process until smooth. Set aside while you assemble your salad. Once your salad is made up drizzle the dressing over your greens for a light and healthy salad. It’s delicious!

I love having an abundance of blueberries in our garden. I use them in all sorts of things from desserts to muffins to smoothies. Take advantage of the blueberries in your garden and mix up your own batch blueberry vinegar. Use it to make your own dressing. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create your own dressing from your own homemade vinegar.
