Blueberry Sensation Salad

Fresh fruit in a salad just tickled my fancy today. And this Blueberry Sensation Salad fit the bill.  We’ve been eating out a lot lately and I just felt the need for something refreshing.  Blueberries, strawberries and orange sections tossed into a spring lettuce mix then add some creamy goat cheese and sprinkle on a few pecan pieces for crunch.

No bottled dressing here—grabbed the blueberry jelly and blended it with a bit of oil and vinegar.  This dressing added just the right amount of sweet and tart without overpowering my fresh salad.

Sometimes you get so busy running errands etc that grabbing something at the drive-through seems to be the fastest and easiest thing we can do when we’re hungry.  Well, this salad can be literally thrown together in a matter of minutes and it’s so much healthier.
