Blueberry Salad with Feta
Blueberries are in season at the moment so I am making the most of it by using them in a salad recipe. They have a delicious, subtle sweetness that goes really well with savoury ingredients, such as feta cheese, for example. The blueberries tone down the sharpness of the feta really nicely. The refreshing minty notes running through this salad complete this sweet and savoury summery offering.

How to make blueberry salad with feta and zucchini: step-by-step
Here is how you make this spiralized zucchini salad with blueberries in just a few simple steps.
1.Prepare the dressing by combining the oil with the lemon juice, mint leaves and honey.
2. Spiralize the zucchini.
3. Finish off by scattering the blueberries, feta and walnuts over the zoodles and drizzling with the dressing. Season to taste and tuck in!
Easy spiralized salad
For me spiralizing vegetables always adds an interesting and fun dimension to a dish. This easy spiralized salad really wouldn’t be the same if I chose to chop the zucchini. In fact raw zucchini is best served in its spiralized form. It’s light, delicate and infused with the flavours of the zingy dressing.
Chopping and serving the zucchini raw simply wouldn’t work as well!
I am sure I’ve said this before but spiralizing often takes less time than chopping. This may come as a surprise but it is absolutely true. And don’t just take my word for it, go ahead and spiralize a zucchini!
The dressing is very simple but you could speed things up even more if you make the dressing ahead. Cover and refrigerate it (overnight) until you are ready to make the recipe.
Substitutions: I used walnuts but you could use any nuts you like. You could also toast them lightly before scattering over the salad.
As for herbs, I chose to add mint into the dressing but you could swap that for fresh basil, thyme or oregano if you prefer.
