Ingredients
  

  • 1 Cup Blueberries
  • 1/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil

Instructions
 

  • If you are making the dressing from fresh blueberries you will first need to make the syrup
  • To make the syrup wash and drain the blueberries- discard any stems
  • Add the blueberries to a sauce pan with the lemon juice
  • cook over medium heat
  • Add the sugar and honey and let is all dissolve
  • Turn the heat to low and continue to simmer
  • Press the berries along sides of the pan to burst some of them
  • You will see the syrup beginning to thicken, however it will thicken a bit more when cool
  • Set the syrup aside to cool after 20 minutes of simmering
  • Once cool you can decide if you want to use the syrup all as a salad dressing or reserve some for blueberry yogurt or pancake syrup
  • If making all into a salad dressing simply add in the oil and vinegar, salt and pepper and enjoy
  • You can keep the dressing in the refrigerator for up to 10 days

Notes

I find it easiest to make the syrup and make the dressing as needed. That way we can enjoy the blueberry syrup as a condiment for pancakes or mixed into some greek yogurt. 
What we like about this syrup is that we know what is in it. No corn syrup, no artificial flavors. 
If you are concerned with sugars, you may substitute a low calorie sweetener in place of the honey or the sugar. It will still taste great!
