Blueberry Balsamic Salad Dressing

(originally made 8/2011)

The blueberries are finally winding down at my Dad's, I only got about 2lbs when I picked on Saturday.    With 2 types of muffins already sitting on the table and blueberry pie bars in the fridge, I was looking for a non-dessert option to make yesterday.       This recipe came from the MMMisforMommy blog via Foodgawker, and it is incredibly simple and delicious.      It's a great mix of tart and sweet and it's an out of this world color.      I poured it over a combination of romaine, red onion, tomatoes, cukes, dried cherries, croutons and sunflower seeds.    So good!   I'm betting it would also be excellent with strawberries or blackberries.

Blueberry Balsamic Salad Dressing

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     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-- used jarred
  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.
