Organic Blueberry Summer Salad


This easy summer salad takes healthy clean-eating up to the next level.  Garden fresh arugula combined with nutty red quinoa and our freshest organic blueberries make for a perfect summer dish.


FruitShare™ organic blueberries arrive fresh from the grower and are packed with flavor and powerful anti-oxidant cancer-fighting properties.  And we love them just for the taste!  Quinoa adds essential protein to your diet.  While cooked like a grain, quinoa is technically a seed.  Arugula is a cruciferous vegetable related to kale.  Arugula adds not only fiber and disease-fighting properties associated with eating fresh fruits and vegetables daily—but most especially a wonderful tangy taste.  Including walnuts (optional)  adds additional healthy fat and protein.


4 cups organic arugula (fresh cut from the garden is ideal!)

1 cup cooked organic quinoa

1 organic yellow pepper—diced

1 cup FruitShare fresh organic blueberries

2-3 organic green onions

1 handful of organic walnuts (optional)


1 shallot finely diced

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

1/8 cup organic blueberries—muddled


maple syrup to taste (the real stuff of course!)

Strain and rinse 1/2 cup red quinoa.  Add to saucepan with 1 cup water, bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until water has been absorbed.  Allow to cool or place in the fridge if time allows.  Meanwhile, wash and spin arugula greens and place in a bowl.  Add diced yellow pepper, green onions, blueberries.  Add quinoa and dress salad with blueberry vinaigrette dressing (below) or vinaigrette of your choice.  Enjoy fresh.

Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing:

Mix oil and vinegar in an approximate 3 to 1 oil to vinegar ratio. Add shallot, muddled blueberries, salt, pepper and maple syrup to taste.
