Blueberry, Nectarine and Feta Salad


 
 

 

 
 

Blueberries and Nectarines are both in season now and I couldn't resist combining them in a summery salad. It may sound like an unusual combination, but it works!.
 
Ingredients:

 
1 large or 2 small nectarines

1 punnet of blueberries ( you will 10 of these for the dressing)
Sliced feta cheese
Mesclun salad leaves
Basil leaves

For dressing

10 blueberries
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of honey (or to taste)
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Sea salt

Method

Mash the blueberries in a mortar and pestle ( use marble , or do in a ceranic bowl as it might stain wood). Add salt , oil, balsamic and honey. Stir till honey is dissolved. Season to taste with sea salt.

Salad:

On plate arrange mesclun mixed with basil leaves.
Scatter blueberries, nectarine slices, and feta over the top.
Drizzle with the balsamic blueberry vinaigrette.

Enjoy!
