So I hope you’ve all checked out my “Tuesday Tip” video about how to make this delicious summer salad but I figured I’d also post the recipe in case you don’t want to re-watch the video 20x as you make the salad and dressing (although be my guest if you do! ). I can not tell you enough how light and yummy this fresh blueberry and walnut salad is, I even made some grilled shrimp with garlic and olive oil tonight for dinner to mix in with the left over salad I had from making the clip. Total win for me! Folks, try this at home! 😉


For the salad combine the following ingredients in a large bowl and toss!

10 cups of baby spinach

2 cups of blueberries( or your favorite seasonal fruit)

1/2- 3/4 cup chopped and toasted walnuts

1/2 cup of crumbled goat cheese

For your dressing combine the following in a small pyrex or pouring cup and whisk away!

2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp of blueberry preserves (or whichever seasonal fruit you’d like to use!)

1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard

2 tbsp of chopped up chives

a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper

2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
