Pork with Blueberry Herb Sauce Recipe

A different and delicious way to use blueberries, this tangy, sweet-savory sauce would also be great over chicken. The blend of berries and balsamic is wonderful! —Libby Walp, Chicago

"I made this using some pork tenderloin medallions for the TOH community ingredient challenge using frozen Maine blueberries. It was fantastic; never thought of pairing blueberries with meat (except for using blueberries in chicken salad). I got enough for two more meals that I froze, and would make this again."

I'm going to try it with chicken next time."
