Blueberry Vinaigrette is a crazy easy salad dressing to make. It only takes a handful of ingredients and a blender or food processor! Not only can it be used on a salad, but it’s a delicious marinade for chicken and shrimp.

Ingredients in Blueberry Vinaigrette

Blueberries – fresh or frozen will work! I typically use fresh, especially during spring and summer months.

Olive Oil

White Balsamic Vinegar – white balsamic vinegar is a little more subtle than balsamic vinegar, and it keeps the dressing from looking too dark. If you can’t find it, you can substitute it with regular balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar.

Honey – for a little bit of natural sweetness.

Dash of salt

How to Make Blueberry Vinaigrette

It’s so simple! All you have to do to make this homemade salad dressing with blueberries is to add all of the ingredients to a food processor or blender and puree until everything is combined. This usually takes 1-2 minutes.

Common Questions

Can I substitute different berries? Sure! This recipe would work well with raspberries and strawberries, too. I also have a Strawberry Vinaigrette recipe that is slightly different.

Can I use a different kind of oil? I think this recipe works best with olive oil, but a light flavored oil like canola or avocado oil would also work well.

How long will this dressing last? This salad dressing will last 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.

How do you store blueberry vinaigrette? I store my homemade salad dressings in mason jars with lids in the refrigerator. I have a variety of sizes which works well for different amounts of dressing. I also have these jars which have a sealed wood lid that I like to store them in.

Blueberry Vinaigrette

This dressing is super versatile and can be used with so many different types of salad greens and salad toppings. Our favorite way to use it is on top of mixed greens with more blueberries, pecans or walnuts, blue cheese, and avocado. It is such a fresh and tasty salad! It would also be great with a salad with chicken, steak, or shrimp and I think would pair well with other cheeses like feta and goat cheese.
