Blueberry Walnut Salad with Goat Cheese

Summer is officially in full swing and that means fruits and vegetables are easy to find and even easier to eat on hot, hot days.  You’ll probably see a few more salad posts before this glorious season is over.  I just can’t get enough of them.

That said, could we all just take a moment to enjoy how pretty this salad is?  I almost had a hard time eating it…almost.  It tastes even better than it looks, if that’s possible, and it is so easy to prepare and will impress your friends (I believe the words Domestic Goddess were used). 

Goat cheese can be somewhat pricey which is why I bought a small log.  However, it really is the pinnacle that puts this salad over the top and both my green beans and organic blueberries were crazy on sale.  Serve as a main course or as a beautiful side salad.  I did both.  (Yes, I prepared this two nights in a row, it was that good).
