Homemade Cherry Vinaigrette
This cherry vinaigrette dressing simply requires a few ingredients and a blender. On top of its easy preparation, it is highly nutritious, deliciously sweet, and a sight for sore eyes!
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1½ tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp honey
- ½ cup avocado oil
Place frozen cherries in a small saucepan, turn on the stove and cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes (or until cherries soften and juices start to release), stir occasionally.
Let cherries cool for at least 15 minutes.
Once cherries cool, place the cooked cherries, apple cider vinegar, 1½ tbsp sesame seeds, black pepper, and honey in a blender.
Blend until you achieve a smooth and uniform product.
Now, while the blender is still running, slowly add the oil and process for another minute.
It’s almost ready! Pour vinaigrette into a jar/air-tight container.
Optional: Mix in ½ tbsp whole sesame seeds and give it a good stir.
Store vinaigrette in the refrigerator.
