Every year I look forward to blueberry season, so I can enjoy these tasty little antioxidant rich berries.
I always buy extra when they are at their peak, so that I can freeze some to use in smoothies after the season.
Of course, I also incorporate them into meals during the season as much as possible.
Naturally, 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.
