This blueberry salad is one of my ultimate favourites and a definite crowd-pleaser! So easy, refreshing and healthy!

With all this warmer weather this past week, I am seriously getting in the mood for all things spring and summer….including this super refreshing blueberry salad! With less than 10 ingredients, it literally takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. So simple, yet still so delicious. I served this salad up several weeks ago for some friends and it was a huge hit! It will definitely be going on repeat. Each mouthful is filled with juicy blueberries, crunchy walnuts and creamy feta all mixed in with a nice lemony flavour. Sounds delicious, right? And to top it off, it’s also packed full of nutrients! Antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamin K and potassium! You could even add some chicken or salmon to it to further increase the protein. This, my friends, is what health in a bowl looks like!
