Blueberry Spinach Salad

Posted in Salads at 9:54 am by Sheila OConnell

I was inspired to make up this salad after a visit to Seasons Oil and Vinegar Taproom in downtown Bethlehem. 

Dressing: 
   2 tbsp walnut oil
   3 tbsp Wesson oil or other light flavored oil
   2 tbsp blueberry balsamic vinegar
   1/4 tsp salt
   8 grinds black pepper
   1/4 tsp sugar
   1/4 tsp dry mustard

Salad:
   Baby spinach leaves
   Tart apple, cored and sliced thin
   Sunflower seeds

Whisk dressing ingredients together until well mixed.  Toss with salad items.  I made a salad for two with half an apple and about half of the dressing.  I can’t wait to make the salad again tonight with the rest of the dressing!!  It was SO GOOD!  It has a strong blueberry taste, so if you want to tone that down you could use one tbsp blueberry vinegar and one tbsp red wine vinegar.

I was thinking that this dressing would be good with a salad of spinach, walnuts, bluberries and goat cheese or bleu cheese.
