Quick and easy salad and so healthy! Delicious blend of fruit and greens! You can substitute goat cheese for the blue cheese, if desired. You can substitute pecans or almonds for the walnuts, if desired. You can substitute maple syrup for the honey, if desired.

I did not make the salad recipe that is posted above but this is the perfect salad dressing. It's delicious on a salad of seasonal vegetables and especially with the overabundance of blueberries this time of year. I think I will double up the blueberries the next time. Read More

I didn't care for this recipe. The balance of flavours was WAY off. I ended up adding about 4 times as many blueberries as the recipe calls for in order to get any blueberry flavour and in the end the overpowering flavour was still balsamic vinegar. Read More

This is a perfect salad for spring, and the dressing is a great accompaniment for the lovely fruit. It is gently tangy, and the flavors of the honey and blueberries come through nicely without overpowering the salad components. I made only two changes: I did not toast the walnuts, and I used feta crumbles instead of blue cheese. Thanks for this yummy, easy addition to our dinner table! Read More

This was very good. My husband was surprised that he liked the dressing. It was great with spinach, arugula, strawberries, blueberries, leftover roasted chicken and feta. I also sprinkled dried cranberries and sesame seeds on top. Will make again. Read More

The only little change is that I added chicken and chopped watermelon to it since I had both on hand. This is absolutely going into the rotation. It s really good and the dressing is fabulous. Read More

I made just the dressing from this recipe, after having a blueberry balsamic dressing on a salad made of spring greens and goat cheese at a restaurant in New Hampshire that was just fabulous. They wouldn't share the recipe for the dressing with me, but I did a little internet research and came across this recipe. With a little tweaking (I used a bit more honey to soften the bite of the balsamic vinegar), it was a dead-on duplicate of the one I had in New Hampshire. Simply delicious -- and very easy to make.

My husband who does not like anything but mayonnaise dressings really enjoyed this dressing. I thought it was perfectly balanced not too sweet or bitter just right. Followed the dressing instructions to the letter. Changed the salad ingredients a bit. No strawberries used chopped apple. Used less fruit and double the salad greens. Used good quality vinegar and blue cheese. Its a keeper. Read More
