Fermented balsamic blueberry vinaigrette is a simple, blueberry salad dressing bursting with sweet and tangy flavors and healthy probiotics. Turn fresh greens into a healthy salad with extraordinary flavors.
How delicious are fresh greens in the spring and summer? Heading out to the new garden to collect fresh greens like kale, lettuce, and spinach is such a joy for me.
It’s a delicacy of the warmer months that I miss all winter long. When those first greens pop up, you know the summer days are coming.
I love experimenting with different fermented dressings, like this delicious kefir ranch dressing. It’s another easy way to get in healthy probiotics.
This balsamic blueberry vinaigrette dressing is sweet and tangy and really brightens up your greens.
My current favorite salad at the moment is a bed of fresh leafy lettuce topped with freshly shredded cheese, roasted chicken, cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, hard boiled eggs, and finished off with this delicious dressing.
Tips For Making Fermented Blueberry Dressing
- This recipe utilizes fermented blueberries from method two of this tutorial. It’s an easy way to use up some ferments.
- If you don’t have any fermented blueberries, you could opt for fresh blueberries and use two tablespoons of water kefir or kombucha.
- Separation is normal. Just shake up before serving.
- This will last about a week in the fridge or in an airtight container.
Fermented Balsamic Blueberry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Ingredients
Olive oil: Avocado oil would also work. Oil gives salad dressing a nice feel while adding a subtle flavor.
Balsamic vinegar: Balsamic vinegar is a very strong and concentrated vinegar that adds a deliciously acidic and slightly sweet flavor.
Brine: This recipe calls for two tablespoons of the liquid/brine from Method 2 ferment. It adds flavor, sweetness, and probiotic goodness.
Fermented blueberries: Tangy and slightly sweet, this adds probiotics and a lovely flavor. Start with two tablespoons and adjust to taste. Your blueberries may be more or less tangy than mine.
Pinch of salt: Salt highlights the sweetness and adds flavor.
Tools you may need:
Immersion blender or regular blender
