Summer Fruit Week 2016: Blueberry, Pea Sprout, Chicken and Goat Cheese Salad

Update and Redux: J – I would not have thought to put these ingredients together in any form. Christina’s inspiration makes for a wonderful Summer salad. Simple to make. Rich and complex flavors. Works for two or for a crowd. A great Summer salad.

C – Blueberries, pea sprouts and chicken need to go together this Summer.

This bowl of salad really feels like Summer to me. It’s simple, refreshing and filling. I love all the textures and flavors in this salad. It’s wonderful and really easy to make.

The combination is incredible: Crispy, tender pea sprouts, hearty chicken, creamy goat cheese, sweet and juicy blueberries, crispy, toasted walnuts with a tart lemon vinaigrette.

I always try to get every element of a salad all in one bite.

Sometimes, I am successful. Other times, not so much.

This one was a little bit challenging to get it all in a single bite.

But, when you do … and your mouth isn’t completely full of food … it’s worth it.

This salad had small pieces of everything. It was perfect to have all the ingredients on a single fork-full.
