Roasted Blueberry Vinaigrette

I mentioned the other day that I would be posting up a handful of blueberry recipes and here is one more. Blueberries taste great fresh and I love them on cereal, tossed on top of ice cream and in a fruit salad. But when roasted, blueberries develop this deep rich and sweet flavor that is incredible.

Roasting blueberries is very simple: just toss a pint of blueberries in a casserole dish and sprinkle with one or two teaspoons of sugar. Cook in a 400F oven for about 12-15 minutes. Halfway through, shake the casserole dish to roll the blueberries around. Roasted blueberries are great on custard, ice cream, shortbread and more.

I roasted blueberries to make this vinaigrette and it works really well on a salad of fresh greens and even sliced apples or pears.
