Description[edit]

Thanks to Julie, who shops at our Overland Park, Kansas store, for generously sharing her idea for this exceptional berry salad. Blueberries add a burst of sweet, acidic flavor and significant antioxidant nutrition. The olive oil and orange juice dressing is enlivened by lemon thyme leaves. Add grilled or broiled chicken or tempeh for a heartier meal.

Ingredients[edit]

Procedures[edit]

  1. Place greens, blueberries, blue cheese and red onion in a serving bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together olive oil, orange juice, lemon thyme leaves, shallot if desired, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Toss salad with the dressing and garnish with roasted, sliced almonds.
