Bet you didn’t think about easy grilled cheese with blueberries. We dare ya! How about a quick salad with this week’s produce?
Salad Crowned with Carrots and Blueberries
Make a bed with your prepped lettuce (and the Salad Mix of the Week is Spring Mix), grate your carrots on top (add other veggies too if you’d like), spruce it up with cubes of your favorite mild or sharp cheese (cheddar is the Cheese of the Week), and crown your salad with as many blueberries as your heart desires. Whisk 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon or lime, a dash of salt and pepper all together, and you’ve got yourself a perfect dressing. Get creative!
Fun blueberry-farming fact: 10 states grow 98% of U.S. blueberries, and one of them is New Jersey!
