This is a very interesting and delicious Juniper Berry Vinaigrette Recipe. The vinaigrette is so aromatic! Since I live in central Oregon and have 20 acres of wild Juniper Berry Trees, this is the perfect recipe to use some of the berries once dried.
Recipe by chef Bruce Naftaly of Le Gourmand Restaurant in Seattle, WA. Recipe appeared in Northwest Palate magazine, May/June 2003.
Did you know – Juniper berries are not real berries. They are cones with scales so miniature and packed down that you canno’t even see the scales – instead they appear as round berries. Only the female tree makes the berries, while the male just has little brown cones. After picking your juniper berries, allow them to dry for several weeks to preserve them.
