Salad dressing with blueberries, dijon mustard, olive oil & sesam

Salad dressing with blueberries, dijon mustard, olive oil & sesam | In Whirl of Inspiration

Maybe the good sunny days that are given to us, here in the almost underwater Amsterdam, gave us also joy and lot's of ideas. I don't know. But what I do know is that I have a new discovery for ya' all.  To tell the truth, I am not the dressing-on-salad type of human being. Most of the times a really good quality olive oil does all the dirty(yummy) job. Perhaps though, the lack of accessing this privilege, which was given so generously back in Greece, prompted me to try and put a little bit of variety on the top of my salad.

The taste of this dressing is a bit tricky, but I am expecting to hear your feedback on that.
