{tasty tuesday}: spinach and blueberry salad

This is one of my favorite cookbooks {thanks to Aunt Ann}, Texas Tables from the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery Counties! Here is an easy yet tasty salad! I'm in the mood for some "summer like" recipes! You with me?! :)


Blueberry Dressing:
1/2 cup raspberry vinegar
1 shallot
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 pint blueberries
1 cup olive oil

Spinach Salad:
10 ounces spinach, stemmed
1 pint blueberries
1/2 cup pecan pieces, toasted
1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese

For the dressing, process the vinegar, shallot and sugar in a bleder until the shallot is finely chopped. Add the blueberries and process until combined. Pour into a bowl and whisk in the olive oil until emulsified.

For the salad, toss the spinach, blueberries, pecans and cheese in a large salad bowl. Add the dressing and mix until coated. Serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
