Sweet & Tangy Cherry Balsamic Dressing for Venison

3 Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Fresh or frozen cherries

  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

For the Salad:

  • Slices of cooked rare venison steak

  • Garden greens or spinach

  • Blue cheese or a tangy accompaniment of your choice

  • Sundried tomatoes

Cherry Balsamic Dressing Recipe:


  1. Prepare the Cherries: If using fresh cherries, remove the pits. If using frozen cherries, let them thaw slightly.

  2. Blend the Ingredients: In a blender or Nutribullet, combine the cherries, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. If you prefer a sweeter dressing, add the optional tablespoon of maple syrup.

  3. Blend until Smooth: Pulse the ingredients until you achieve a smooth, well-combined dressing. Taste it and adjust the sweetness by adding more maple syrup if desired.

  4. Store and Serve: Transfer the cherry balsamic dressing to an airtight container or jar. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week. Before using, give it a good shake or stir as the ingredients may separate over time.

Venison Salad Assembly:

  1. Cook the Venison: Season the venison steak with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet or grill to high heat. Sear the venison for about 2-3 minutes per side for rare, or longer if you prefer it more well-done. Rest the meat for a few minutes before slicing it thinly.

  2. Prepare the Greens: On a plate, arrange a bed of fresh garden greens or spinach.

  3. Add the Venison: Place the thinly sliced venison steak on top of the greens.

  4. Add the Cheese: Crumble blue cheese or your chosen tangy accompaniment over the venison.

  5. Top with Sundried Tomatoes: Sprinkle sundried tomatoes over the salad for an added burst of flavour.

  6. Drizzle the Cherry Balsamic Dressing: Finish the salad by generously drizzling the sweet and tangy cherry balsamic dressing over the top.

Creating a memorable venison salad is as easy as 1-2-3 with this 3-ingredient cherry balsamic dressing.

The combination of sweet cherries, tangy balsamic vinegar, and healthy olive oil perfectly complements the gaminess of venison.
