2 Summer Salads: Southwestern Harvest Grains & Summer Blueberry Salad!

by Nicole on July 2, 2012

Another weekend, another set of home projects near completion. I’m sure you’ll all be super glad when we’re done with this bathroom so I can STOP talking about this. We’re about 2 weeks from completion, I think and then maybe 3 weeks from final, final touches.

We did a lot around the house this weekend, including almost finishing the front landscaping of our house. I’ll have to post some pictures, but it really does look like night and day. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint on the door, a new mailbox, some plants and mulch will do to make a house look so much better. My mom is really the designer out there, so has a vision and I basically just sit and watch. MAJOR thanks to her!

Danny and I also tended to our garden in the back. Hopefully it will start producing some veggies soon!

Over the weekend I got in a 4.5 mile run very early Saturday to beat the heat. During the day, while running errands, the heat really got the best of me and I tried to lay down as much as I could. I felt good enough to head to a small BBQ to celebrate the engagement of my friends Meg & Tim.

For the BBQ I made a Southwestern harvest grains salad and a blueberry, walnut & goat cheese salad. Both delicious and super, super easy.



There ya have it, 2 super easy salads to bring to a BBQ this summer!

Have a great day!

I LOVE goat cheese, walnuts and dried cranberries on my salad … never thought of using blueberries instead! Will be trying this week for sure!

These salads look and sounds really refreshing :) Thanks!

That blueberry salad has all the components of a top salad for me – fruit, nuts, cheese, balsamic, and greens. Yum! The harvest grains doesn’t look half bad either. ;)

Wow, both of these are just so perfect for a healthy summer picnic!

Definitely consider that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to remember of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst folks consider worries
that they just don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing with no
need side-effects , other people could take a signal.

Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
