Dish Type: More-than-Salads


  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 or 2 Tbsp water, optional
  • 1 Tbsp minced shallot or red onion
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

Puree the vinegar, blueberries, and half of the walnuts in a blender until smooth, thinning it with 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if desired.

Finely chop the rest of the walnuts. Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and add the shallot, thyme, and sugar. Shake to combine and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least a few hours and up to 3 days to allow the flavors to meld.
