These little berries just do it all!
They are full of antioxidants and taste delish and if that if that doesn't get you on the blue bandwagon then nothing will.

3/4 cup fresh blueberries
8-10 large handfuls of mixed greens
1/3 cup shelled pistachios
1/2 cup feta or goat cheese

1 garlic clove minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Servings: 4

Combine dressing ingredients in a food processor. You will not use it all for the salad.

In a large bowl combine salad, cheese, nuts and blueberries and toss with 1/4 cup dressing or more to taste. Plate.
