I started making my own salad dressings many years ago. It’s actually easier than people think. If you use just a few key ingredients, you can have a super flavorful homemade salad dressing. This Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe only has 3 ingredients!

I love it because it’s all natural, has no preservatives or sugar. But mostly, it’s just plain delicious! It’s a perfect summer salad dressing, but makes a fantastic sauce for chicken or pork, and you might even want to dip your veggies into it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t remember the last time I bought salad dressing. I’m a huge fan of balsamic vinaigrette, so that one is really my ‘go-to’. I don’t even have a recipe for it on the blog, but all you do is mix extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar together. I like mine about a 2:1 ratio (2 parts olive oil, 1 part vinegar), if you like it less tangy, make it 3:1.
These bottles are the best for clean easy pouring of olive oil.

You can add a little dijon mustard to it, and/or some maple syrup, but most of the time, I just do the oil and vinegar. Easiest dressing ever! It’s awesome on its own, or a great base for another flavor.

Speaking of other flavors, these homemade salad dressings take about 2 minutes to make.

Let’s get back to the Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette…

This one has one extra step~ cooking down the blueberries, but it’s really simple and only takes a few minutes. If you like it a little sweeter, or blueberries aren’t quite in season yet, you can sweeten it up with some maple syrup or honey, or the sweetener of your choice.

You can store it in the fridge for 3-5 days. I love these cute jam jars. Ready to make it?

    This was so delicious! I used it as a marinade for some chicken, then used the rest on a cool, crisp salad, not too sweet, not too sour! Just right!

  2. It should be 3/4 cup of Olive Oil. I’ve changed it in the recipe card. If you like it a little more tangy, you can even cut the olive oil a little more. I recommend making it as written the first time, and then after that add your own tweaks if you feel necessary. Make it your own. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Would love to know if anyone has tried to preserve this vinaigrette in a water bath!

  4. Hi Kathy, I’m looking into this, I may have had a typo! Thanks for your patience.

  5. Hi Bobbi, honestly, I’ve never done it. Please stop back and let us know if you try it out and how the results are!

  6. You could absolutely just cook and use 1/2 cup of blueberries. In the recipe notes I talk about other ways I enjoy the blueberries. Some people like to use more than 1/2 a cup, so it gives some versatility. But just do what works best for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wonderful recipe – thanks! Thawed frozen blueberries and used the dressing over a grilled salmon salad. Delicious, not too sweet, and a perfect complement.

  8. This recipe for blueberry vinagerette is to heavy on the olive oil. Our suggestion decrease it to 3/4 cup of olive oil, 1 cup of bluerberries, and 1/3 cup of balsamic vinergsrette!
