I think that this is where it started, back in June, at City Landing for our first dinner in Boston–I’ve really had a thing for berries this summer, and I trace it right back to this simple but glorious salad.
Strawberries, Dried Blueberries, Candied Pecans, Blue Cheese, Raspberry Vinaigrette 10

Sadly, I didn’t take a photo of it, as I got straight to eating it. I’ve made variations on it several times since I’ve been back home, though–fresh blueberries instead of dried, and no blue cheese or pecans (although I just remembered, as I was writing this, that I actually might have pecans in the pantry, so I’ll throw some in next time if that’s true!). And if I were back in Boston, I’d likely go to Haymarket–the city’s historic outdoor produce market–to pick up all my fresh ingredients, so I know that this salad would cost me a lot less than $10 to make.
I’m combining my Linked-Up Wordless Wednesday and Just One Paragraph posts for this week’s WW theme, “Summer Foods.”
