Blueberry Romaine Salad


Welcome to #BlueberryWeek!  I've been so excited for this week, we are such huge fans of blueberries!  My grandmother used to have 150 blueberry bushes and if you came to visit, you were given a bucket and a row and strict instructions on picking.  Roll the berries between your thumb and first finger, but don't take off the blue "frost." Pick one bush clean before moving on.   And heaven help you if you picked a red or white one :)


I've got 5 of those plants on my property now, along with 4 of a different variety that I added this spring. It's awesome to just be able to stroll out in the yard and grab a handful to toss in my oatmeal, or on top of this Blueberry Romaine Salad.


I found this recipe on the Taste of Home site.  I just love homemade dressings!  They really are simple to make and taste so much better than the store bought ones. I did not add the onions to the dressing, I sliced them and put them onto the salad itself. 

On it's own, it's delicious, but you can add some sliced grilled chicken to make it the perfect summer dinner. Sweet juicy berries, salty crunchy cashews, and that dressing!  I did omit the cheese this time, and if I were to use it, I most likely would go with Parmesan since I'm not a fan of Swiss.
