This High-Fibre Blueberry Salad Makes a Hearty Spring Side Dish

I’m a blueberry girl. I love those 
purple-blue orbs for their fabulous taste of summer and their high content of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibre. I don’t love them quite as much when they stain my white T-shirts, but you need to take the bad with the good. When looking for the freshest blueberries, make sure they have a silver sheen on them. It’s called bloom and it’s an indication that they were just picked. No bloom? No buy.
