Fresh blueberries are one of the best ingredients summer brings to our tables. Bursting with flavor, they are joined by caramelized pecans, mellow goat cheese and a quick and easy blueberry vinaigrette dressing.

  • 2 tablespoons blueberry juice from a bottle
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 ounces mixed baby greens
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, broken into pieces or crumbled
  • 6 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 4 ounces caramelized pecans (use pralines if you can’t find these)

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a round-bottomed bowl. Whisk vigorously until the dressing is thickened and opaque.

Divide the greens onto 4 plates. Top with blueberries, goat cheese and pecans.

Re-whisk the vinaigrette and drizzle over the salads. Enjoy!
