Blueberry Corn Salad – a Five-Ingredient Lunch

Yesterday after returning from Kansas, I had lunch with Dave (yay, Hawaiian Time!) and then promptly fell into a coma-like nap. I was finally able to wake up at about 3:30, and to start tackling my mountain of  Google reader items,  and to start making/shooting things for the blog, eventually. I was moving really, really slow. I’m actually writing this post “yesterday” but at around 6 on Wednesday, and I’m really hoping this doesn’t sound like I just woke up from a travel-induced zombie state.

Here’s a little lunch I’ve put together this afternoon for Dave and I to take tomorrow – it doesn’t even involve any real prep besides washing. We had about a pint of blueberries leftover from a while back, so I’ve been trying to get a little creative with them.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (can be thawed frozen ones or canned)
  • 2 cups ish loose greens
  • 2 Tbsp. feta
  • Red wine vinegar, to taste

Wash all ingredients thoroughly and combine. Dress with a teensy bit of red wine vinegar.


  1. What a lovely salad! I love the simplicity and the unique combination of ingredients. So colorful, too!

  2. Thanks Carrie! It was pretty tasty. I can’t wait to make it with late summer corn instead of canned :)

Yesterday I posted about two fun non-recipe recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers. We really enjoyed both of them, but if you thought that granola took care of all of our cranberry sauce, well, you’ve got another think coming. I wanted to switch things up a little for lunch on Sunday. We’ve eaten almost all of the […]
