blueberry {superfood} salad

I love fruit in my salads, 
but I'd never tried blueberries until now.
So. glad. I. did.

Sorry for the photo quality -- I made this at about 9pm with no natural light! :(

Super easy.  Super healthy. Super-foodie!  
{walnuts, spinach, blueberries!}

You will need:
1 pint of blueberries
1 package of baby spring mix or baby spinach
1 4 oz. tub of crumbled feta 
1/2 cup of walnut pieces 
{I toast mine in a single layer on a baking sheet for five minutes at 350}
optional: 1 chicken breast, cooked and sliced

 1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
1-2 tbsp dijon mustard - depending how tangy you like it

To make salad: Arrange greens on plates, add blueberries, walnuts, feta and chicken {if using} and drizzle with dressing.

{recipe based off one I saw recently in a Kroger mailer - however I made a few small changes and the dressing I concocted.  not sure how to cite that as I have nothing to link it to, but thanks Kroger peeps!}

Makes 2 large meal-size salads, or 4 side salads.

So good! 

Have a {fabulous} weekend!

PS - another 'my life' post next friday!
sorry -- been busy with projects and slacking on the writing...


  1. Have done this too and it is soooo good!

  2. Looks so delicious I must try it! I make a strawberry sald that is amazing and I use tobacco in the dressing :)

  3. Yummy. Love blueberries and walnut salads! {Although have NOT been able to eat salads lately. All that sounds good is fast food! So much for the healthy eating!}

  4. YUM! Looks so good. We can't keep blueberries around this house. My one year old eats them like candy!


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
