Red, White, and Blueberry Salad

Foodwise, Summer is an amazing time of year. You get to dive into all the fresh and beautiful bounty that is seasonal fruits and veggies. From berries and stone fruits to corn and fresh herbs… there really is no better time of year to eat the rainbow.

I love to enjoy the sun and head out with my family to local blueberry patches and pick buckets of fresh beautiful berries to put in ALL my summer faves. Tip: You can find many local seasonal fruits at farmers markets. Buy local/Eat seasonal.

Not only are there options a plenty when it comes to berries this time of year, they are also PACKED with nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, powerful antioxidants, and even fiber.

I hope this colorful little dish makes its way to your summer table.
