A Little bit of summer from the freezer

25 01 2012

Sometimes, in the cold of winter, you need a little pick me up. Something that, when you close your eyes reminds you of sitting in the backyard on a Sunday afternoon, lazing in the sun, and enjoying the best the season has to offer.

A berry vinaigrette served on baby spinach – it pairs well with pears, apples, and pecans or almonds.

Berry Vinaigrette

1/3 cup olive and/or flaxseed oil (I used Vega Oil and olive oil)
1/4 cup fresh or frozen berries (I used blueberries)
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 or 2 Tbsp water, for desired consistency

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

Can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
