Melon and Blueberry Salad for #HotSummerEats 2015

Wow, what a week this has been!  I'm feeling kind of melancholy that it is almost over.  Tomorrow is our last day and the last opportunity for you to enter to win some great prizes from our wonderful sponsors.

I want to take a moment to thank my friend, Cam, of Culinary Adventures with Camilla, for all of her hard work for the past couple of months.  She throws the best parties in blogland and I, and many others. think that she is the hostess with the mostest!

Today, I am sharing with you a salad filled with dark leafy greens and colorful fruits dressed in a citrus vinaigrette that you are going to love and be proud to serve at all of your summer get togethers. Not only is it delicious and beautiful but it is easy peasy.....the perfect recipe....Enjoy.

I used, my handy dandy little juicer that I got from Casabella to make the vinaigrette.  I juiced the lemon into it and then added the remaining ingredients right into the juicing cup, mixed with a fork and poured over the dressing.  I love that juicer!
