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!.

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


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.


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