Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

I've enjoyed blueberry pancakes on many occasions, but the idea of blueberries with vegetables for dinner is a culinary possibility that I've recently only begun to explore. Not too long ago, I made red cabbage with mushrooms and blueberries. The sweet blueberries complimented the earthy flavor of the cabbage to perfection. Yes, this idea works for me.

Fresh blueberries in a simple flavorful balsamic vinaigrette over mixed greens proved to be the ideal accompaniment to my Friday menu of cheese and herb fritters with tomato and balsamic jam and honey lemon seed poppy cake for dessert.

Yes, Lisa, this looks wonderful. I'm like you that my eyes were opened to the savory possibilities for blueberries by that cabbage recipe. And on the vinaigrette, my mom sent me some "blueberry balsamic vinegar" (no kidding) for Christmas, so I'm definitely going to bump it up with your idea for actually adding blueberries. yum.
