It's that time of the year when I crave salads and ice cream. Or anything of the cold variety, really. And what could be better with a salad
and ice cream than homemade Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing?
Strawberries are in season where I live and I'm loving it. Most people wouldn't think that strawberries grow near the beach, but they do and they're bountiful. My mom and I picked buckets full of strawberries a few weeks ago and I'm going back with a group for work tomorrow. I'm thrilled to learn that my favorite strawberry field will soon produce blueberries... they'll be ready for picking in July. I'll definitely be back to pick my weight in blueberries and make more of this amazing dressing in a few months, but for now, frozen blueberries are doing the trick and I can't get enough salad with this liquid perfection drizzled atop!
Try this dressing today! You're going to love it :)
