Summer Salad

"Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These
are the secrets of happiness and good health." 
Julia Child 

Blueberry Corn Salad
Cook's notes: This salad features an unusual pairing with blueberries and corn together. I must admit I was a bit skeptical as I looked at a picture in a magazine to use both of these ingredients in a salad. But the flavorful combination won me over. This lite vinaigrette Pomegranate Blueberry pictured here has no preservatives and really enhanced the flavor of the salad. I cooked one cob of corn in boiling water and used a knife to get corn off the cob. Cashews were in this salad but I think honey roasted almonds would be better choice.  This salad is a healthy choice for summer eating. 

Romaine lettuce or mixed greens
cantaloupe chunks
honey roasted almonds
green onions
shredded Swiss cheese
optional adding cucumbers
Assemble salad and drizzle dressing on top right before serving
