Blueberry Basil Salad Dressing
This is an unusual dressing, celebrating foods that scream “July” here. It’s also interesting for a salad dressing, in that it contains neither oil nor vinegar, nor a bunch of fat, yet still carries a ton a flavor. You’ll probably want to spoon it over your salad, as it’s a bit thick and frothy. Which is great!

  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Puree. Thin with water as needed, and whir a bit more. When it’s smooth and a bit frothy, adjust seasoning and serve.
Recipe Notes

Because blueberries have a lot of pectin, this will thicken a fair bit as it sits.  But because it isn’t cooked, you can just stir it a bit and it will become fluid again.
