saskatoon berry vinagriette
a perfect holiday monday spent picking saskatoon berries, means a perfect tuesday dinner courtesy those very same berries.
with pie being a must for some of the berries, other, healthier alternatives are also needed. so last night i took those berries and transformed them into a vinaigrette used to top a salad made of greens, grilled chicken, saskatoon berries, red onions, goat cheese & cashews.
i'm a genius.
Saskatoon Berry & Balsamic Vinaigrette
2/3 cup saskatoon berries
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
4 Tbsp honey
2 tsp dijon mustard
sea salt & pepper
In saucepan bring berries, balsamic vinegar & honey to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes to soften berries.
Add to food processor or blender and stream in olive oil, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
note: the consistency of this vinaigrette is thicker, feel free to thin it out with the addition of lemon juice or a little more olive oil.
