Salad with Blueberries and Blue Cheese

May 26, 2010

Here’s another light and easy salad combination with my current favorite dressing,  Honey Poppy Seed Vinaigrette.  I can’t take credit for the blueberry idea though.  Last weekend we were talking with a friend about gardening and food.   In talking about all the ways we love avocados (and remember, I almost never make a salad without them) when he started talking about a salad with arugula, avocado, blue cheese and blueberries.  Of course that sounded very similar to the salad I’ve been making with dried cherries and blue cheese so I had to come home and try it with blueberries.  Thanks Doug, for yet another salad addiction!

Throw a bunch of  arugula in a big bowl.

Add sliced avocado and a bunch of fresh blueberries.

Add crumbled blue cheese and a handful of sliced almonds.

Toss it together with the dressing and enjoy!

This looks fantastic. I can look at that picture and just taste the sweetness of the blueberries combined with the tartness of the blue cheese.

I’m trying this over the weekend.

I may try it with some raspberries in a few weeks as well. Our berry bushes are going to give us a huge bounty this summer (if I can get to them before the deer do).

I’m so jealous of your raspberries! They just don’t do well here and it’s so hard to find good, fresh berries even at a premium price.

Try freeze-dried blueberries in this salad – the crunch makes all the difference http://cuceesprouts.com/2011/05/blueberry-surprise-salad/

I’m sure freeze-dried is fine, but I really prefer fresh when possible.

I make a similar salad without the avocado & a different dressing (2T Red Wine Vinegar, 2T Lemon Juice, 4T Olive Oil, 1 tsp of Dried Basil, 1 1/2 tsps. Sugar) & I serve it over warm chicken scallopini. Serve with nice crusty grilled bread.
It’s always a hit!
