Blueberry Picking

This was not a Taste Tempters cooking club event but thought I'd share since I love blueberries and love picking them every July!

Blueberry Spinach Salad

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp sugar (can add more if you like it sweeter)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 (10 oz) pack fresh spinach
  • 1 (4 oz) pack feta cheese or blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup almonds, toasted
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • In a jar with tight-fitting lid, mix first 5 ingriedents and shake well. In a large salad bowl, toss the spinach, cheese, blueberries, almonds, eggs and bacon. Add dressing, gently toss; serve immediately.
Note: In this photo I served the spinach salad with a baked potato, bacon & feta cheese (rather than putting the cheese and bacon on the salad I put it on the potato). This recipe was adapted from this Blueberry Spinach Salad recipe on Allrecipes.com.
