Flavor Pairings

Blueberries are a versatile ingredient that pair well with a variety of flavors, cuisines and meals. The combination of savory and sweet ingredients makes blueberries the perfect match for salty, zesty or aromatic dishes. If you need some convincing, try our Savory Blueberry Pizza or a Blueberry Turkey Burger with Blueberry Ketchup – both of these dishes combine blueberries with savory ingredients to create a final product that is well-rounded and exciting!

Lemon and mint are common flavor pairings for blueberries, but there are plenty of others that often go overlooked. For example, rosemary, coconut, balsamic and banana all pair well with these little blue dynamos, like in these Blueberry Coconut Tartlets.

Cheese is another great pairing with blueberries. Try this Blueberry-Cucumber Salad, where juicy blueberries bring sweetness to salty feta and cool cucumbers. Keep this recipe for a Quick Blueberry-Cranberry Relish on hand and pour it over brie, camembert or goat cheese on crostini.

When it comes to flavor pairings for blueberries, there is a whole world of deliciousness to explore! They enhance just about any dish with fun, flavor, color and sweetness.
