Blueberry Cucumber Summer Salad With Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette

Blueberry Cucumber Summer Salad With Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette

It’s so summery, refreshing and crispy. You just need simple ingredients: A big old bunch of spring greens. But of course, you can use your favorite variety of greens! Fresh blueberries that are getting SO good right now. Fresh cucumber for a refreshing punch. Thinly sliced scallions, because they add the perfect bite without being way too onion-y. Parmesan cheese, because cheese is life. And sugared almonds which add this granola-like crunch and a hint of sweetness.

The key to the creamy balsamic is to add a little heavy cream into the dressing. I’ve made so many dressings with yogurt and mayo and yes, that’s a possibility here. But it never fails that the yogurt or mayo separates and almost curdles in the dressing after it sits for a while. With the heavy cream, this never happens! You still have to shake it up or stir it well, but it won’t get all weird on you.


  • ⅔ Cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 cups spring greens, baby spinach or your greens of choice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 baby seedless cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup finely grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives
