Blueberry Lovers Salad

This week we wanted to share an extremely simple yet delicious salad that not only appeals to grown ups but is always a HUGE hit in our ‘Kids Can Cook’ classes.

We made this last week in our most recent class and the kids, ages 6-10 (and their parents) demolished the entire bowl and there was not a morsel left.

So for those of you who have picky salad eaters, this one is a must-try. It’s also a great way to use up your seasonal blueberries which can now be found locally and are readily available everywhere.

Before we share the recipe we wanted to give a quick shout-out to the amazing benefits of blueberries, which are on almost everyone’s “superfood” list.

They also contain a compound known as gallic acid, thought to be one of the most powerful antioxidants of the bunch.

In addition to blueberries, gallic acid is also found in walnuts, apples, flax seed. Ahhh – just a few more of our favorite whole foods!
