Blueberry Lime Salad Dressing

This low fat dressing is bursting with flavour and ridiculously good for you! It's a sweet, tart, fresh summery dressing that tastes amazing (if I do say so myself). 

If you want it creamy and high protein just add some silken tofu or blended soaked nuts, it'll taste great- but I like it just like this. The blueberries make it sweet and the lime and vinegar give it that kick that makes it just savoury enough to be a dressing rather than dessert sauce. 

I tested it out on my husband, father and 2 friends and they all loved it too. If you're yet to try fruit in your salads or dressings I can't say enough- give it a go! it may sound odd but it tastes divine.
Blueberry Lime Salad Dressing
Makes 2 large or 3 small serves
1.5 cups blueberries
juice and zest of 1 lime
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Defrost blueberries
  • Zest and juice lime
  • Combine ingredients and blend (I use the stick blender)
  • Enjoy!
Apologies for the lack of posts recently but uni work comes first! Don't worry, we've been eating well- the most recent 2 minute recipes have been vegan pesto (basil, pine nuts, nutritional yeast blended) then because it tastes so good a parsley pesto (parsley, pine nuts, nutritional yeast blended) I didn't blog them because a) I was in a hurry and b) it's not rocket science... the other half has been making filo pastry samosas full of potato, pumpkin, carrot and spinach with a ginger cumin, coriander, lemon, garam masala flavour base. It's not exactly what I'd call healthy but how can you complain when it's full of veggies and not deep fried?

Hope you're all well and smiling!

  2. I'm not usually a fan of sweet salad dressings, but you've made this sound savory enough that it would be appealing to me. Maybe I'll break out of my comfort zone!

  3. I love salads with fruit in them - something about it feels gourmet, or smething. I've tried grapes, citrus, and strawberries, but the blueberry+salad combination is not one that has ever occurred to me! This sounds like a great dressing!
