Ingredients
  • 2 Cups orange juice
  • 2 Cups fresh blueberries, divided use
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, divided use
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  2. In blender, combine reduced juice, 1 cup blueberries, honey, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, sugar, mustard and salt; blend until smooth. With blender running, gradually drizzle in oil. Cover and refrigerate until service.
  3. Core and quarter apples; slice quarters crosswise.
