I was in a small grocery store in town the other day looking for a cucumber and they had none. What I spied in its stead was a package of organic blueberries. I couldn’t say no. It’s the beginning of March and I haven’t had a blueberry that wasn’t frozen in months. Besides eating them a few at a time straight from the carton, we had them in salads as a course at dinner, then I had them again in my breakfast cereal. I was going to throw them into a smoothie but quickly realized that would be a waste of a fresh berry when smoothies are just as good with frozen.

What is missing from this pic is the balsamic vinaigrette that we topped the salad with, and the goat cheese that I wish I had added. Simple. Colorful. Bursting with flavor & nutrients.
