Is this a salad dressing?

While researching my jams and jelly binder for the cooking game, I came across this. I don't know what to make of it. It does call for DH's favorite, Blueberry. What do you all thing it is for? Maybe a fruit salad or lettuce salad or what?

Blueberry Dressing (makes 2/3 cup)

2 TB blueberry vinegar
1 1/2 tsp firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
1/3 cup olive oil
3 TB blueberry preserves

In a bowl whisk together the vinegar, brown sugar, cardamom and coriander, add the oil in a stream, whisking until it is emulsified. Stir in the preserves and let the dressing stand for 1 hour at room temperature.

That’s pretty sweet! I could see it as a good dressing for a spinach, fruit and nut salad, maybe?

Needless to say, I’ll never make it. I’ve never seen blueberry vinegar on the shelves at the supermarket, so it’s a no-go for me.(I’m sure one could make blueberry vinegar, but I’m not even gonna google it!)

I've made a dressing with fig balsamic vinegar and used it on a salad made of butter lettuce, fruit, feta and mint. Your recipe could also be used as a marinade and glaze (not over direct heat) for grilled chicken.

I don't ever recall seeing blueberry vinegar on any grocery shelf.

You would find it in a specialty store, not a grocery store.

Thanks guys for your salad suggestions. I have also put DH on Blueberry Vinegar alert when he is grocery shopping. If he can't find it, I have a couple recipes on how to make it.
1. Blueberry Vinegar
2. Blueberry Basil Vinegar
3. Triple-Berry Vinegar - more of a marinade
