Don’t you love fresh blueberries? I look forward to enjoying these tasty little antioxidant rich berries every year. I always buy extra when they are at their peak, so that I can freeze some to use in smoothies after the season. I also incorporate them into meals during the season as much as possible. Of course, I snack on them, too.
A salad is a great way to enjoy blueberries at lunch of dinner as a main dish or side. This one only takes a few minutes to prepare, even with a homemade salad dressing. I especially like the way the flavors of the tangy blue cheese and the sweet berries balance each other out for a satisfying meal.
