The best part about Blueberry Salad in addition to its big flavor is how easy it comes together. Fresh romaine, salty feta, red onions (that are optional but look pretty here) and of course, fresh blueberries at the perfect point of ripeness.

Some salty bacon or foolproof chicken might be good here because the people in your life just might want this salad to be the main event. And it is up to the challenge.

This blueberry and feta salad is one big bite of summer.

One Winning Dressing

Another scene stealer in this blueberry salad is the dressing. If you added some vodka to it, the dressing might qualify as a cocktail shrub.  Part balsamic vinegar, part blueberry preserves with some olive oil thrown in to make it all salad-like, this blueberry balsamic dressing just works.

Keep a jar of blueberry preserves (or these) on hand all the time because this salad will just become part of your summer. It has a way of doing that.


Pro Tip

One standard jar of blueberry preserves makes two batches of balsamic blueberry dressing.


I’ll step away now. Got some salad to get working on.

Tips

For a few: Buy ingredients for the full recipe but use half of the recipe for one meal and use the remaining for another. make the full dressing recipe and use throughout the week. Top with your favorite grilled protein!

For a crowd: Make small individual cups of salad for a party buffet or bridal or baby shower. Guests love eating personal servings of their favorites as it gives them the chance to try a lot of yummy dishes!
