We are right smack in the middle of one very special seaon: the one belonging to the blueberry. A lovely treat just out-of-hand, blueberries make for about a healthful snack as any. But, other than throwing a handful into your breakfast cereal, you may be stumped on how to incorporate one of summer's besties into your daily meals. Our favorite foodie bloggers to the rescue. Enjoy a Meatless Monday that is also decidedly blue (in a good way, of course).
For a combination you've likely never relished, the creative folks at Two Peas & Their Pod have come up with a Blueberry Corn Salad that happens to be simultaneously sweet and spicy, and also bursting with flavor.
Let the blueberry lend it's brilliant hue to this sparkling summer beverage from Hot Pot Cooking. When the heat is almost too much to bear, sit in the shade sipping this Blueberry Sparkling Lemonade, and take the edge off.
Of course, the blueberry shines in desserts of all kinds. And the Berry Tart with Lemon Cashew Cream and Fresh Basil from Baker in Recover is just about as good as it gets.
Another place this berry is particularly adored is in the baked good's arena. Let the folks at Gumshoe Gastronomy steal your hearts with this recipe for The Perfect Muffin.
