In an effort to be healthier this summer (and in life) I’ve been on a total salad kick lately. I have finally fallen in love with kale and all of its amazing nutritional benefits. I’ve been preparing all of my salads for the week on Sunday afternoon to make sure that I have a healthy option to just grab on my way out of the door to work each morning. And it has been working beautifully. And since lettuce and cucumbers can become boring, I’ve been mixng up my toppings each week. This week’s salad: Blueberry Balsamic Summer Salad.

This salad features antioxidant rich blueberries, a zesty white balsamic vinaigrette and a sprinkle of tasty feta cheese. Not only is this salad delicious and nutritious, it’s also really beautiful all laid out on a platter. Not that I’m eating off of a platter at work, but in the event that you want to serve this salad at a summer picnic, it’s pretty beautiful to look at.

Add this salad to your list of side dishes for your 4th of July cookout this weekend! Your guests and family will be asking for seconds.

Head on over to the Living Litehouse blog for the recipe!
