Fresh Blueberry, Pistachio, & Edamame Salad with Goat Cheese

Fresh Blueberry, Pistachio, & Edamame Salad with Goat Cheese.

Summer is such a glorious time of fresh bounty.

Salads become meals made from fresh fruits and vegetables.  Like this yummy salad I made for lunch one day with some plump sweet and tart blueberries, crunchy pistachios, protein and fiber-rich edamame, and creamy crumbled goat cheese piled on a bed of greens.

All of this drizzled with a honey red wine vinaigrette is heaven in a bowl!

What is your favorite summer salad?  There are so many wonderful combinations and possibilities!

  1. This looks delicious – except, I will have to substitute something for the goat cheese and onions are never an option for me! I do love that vinaigrette dressing, that’s how my daughter makes it too! Now, from the toddler’s point of view: “only the blueberries.” I explained to Benjamin that you will not be able to do any animals and stories for awhile. He asked “why?” Gem’s words: “You know when you want something and I say to Please wait a few minutes, I am busy right now! Well, Jodi is very busy right now.” Benjamin’s response: “Okay, a few more minutes.” We are off to visit Buzz! Thank-you!!

  2. Looks like a winning combination! Yum!! 😜 Love salads in the summer! They are great for dinner. I found an awesome cookbook from Williams-Sonoma called “Salad of the Day.” It has 365 recipes in it! Lots of interesting ideas too! I got my copy at Costco – do you have these stores where you live? But I’m sure you can get it on Amazon too. It has a spiralized zucc salad on the front. 🥗💕
