Jeanette Chen from Jeanette’s Healthy Living blog just loves this time of year when all the farms are bringing the blueberries to market and so do we! It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t enjoy these rare fruits in nature that have a brilliant blue color and fun to eat. Jeanette especially loves the combination of fruits and nuts in green salads, and the tanginess of the aged goat cheese complimented the blueberries nicely. Enjoy!
