Blueberry Red Onion Dressing

This sweet tart dressing is one of my favorites. It can be used for a warm dressing over meat or a warm salad, or cold over greens and veggies. I like it thick, but adjust the consistency to your liking. If you don't add sweetener, it will be tart and zingy, if you do add a bit, it will play up the natural sweetness of the blueberries, red onion and cider vinegar. Again, adjust sweetness according to taste. This dressing is oil free. I like to add a fat when I am using it for a salad, such as nuts, hemp seeds or goat cheese. My favorite way to use it is served over massaged kale, roasted sweet potato and hemp hearts.
