Blueberry Shrimp Salad with Lemon Dressing

Blueberry Shrimp Salad with Lemon Dressing

It’s blueberry season here in Florida, and the stores have been full of sweet, plump blueberries at great prices. We’re even going this weekend blueberry picking to a local u-pick farm. I can’t wait to get plenty of blueberries for freezing, making blueberry preserves and more fun recipes. I didn’t get around to taking my son to any farms last year, but I’m excited to take him to several this year. To take advantage of these perfect summer berries, I have been trying to incorporate them more in my cooking. Yesterday I made this simple salad with blueberries paired with shrimp, feta cheese and pecans. For the dressing, I made a slightly sweet light lemon drizzle with honey. It’s very simple, healthy and delicious.
