I absolutely adore blackberries. In fact, I have to admit I eat blackberries before most of my family even knows I bought them at the store. I also love condiments, which isn't necessarily a good vice to have. As you know, most condiments you buy in the store are full of sugar and added preservatives. So, why not make your own skinny blackberry dijon sauce?
In order to try to curb my use of condiments, I try to make my sauces, dressing, and plant-based mayo from scratch. For instance, my Skinny Cashew Garlic Lemon Aioli, I use in a variety of recipes and generally keep it in the refrigerator for recipes at hand. Another one of my staple dressings in my OMG Oil-Free Dressing, which I admit I eat on almost everything.
With that in mind, Skinny Blackberry Dijon Sauce has multiple uses. First, my children claim it is the end-all pretzel dip. My husband, for example, puts it on the paninis he makes, regardless of the ingredients. Personally, I love it drizzled on a baked potato, or on a warm grain bowl.
Regardless of your desire, Skinny Blackberry Dijon Sauce is versatile and fabulous. With only 3 ingredients and 10 minutes, you will have a delicious sauce with little to no effort.
All you need is a pint of blackberries, dijon mustard, and pure maple syrup.
