Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing

Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing

This is one of those summer recipes that you can whip up in under five minutes.

It’s an incredibly simple dish and I’ve been enjoying it (beyond words) over the past few weeks.

I just can’t help but share the love here, folks … I make easy vegetarian recipes every week- but this one’s a keeper!

Blueberries

Sheeehhhh- it’s been hot in Manhattan and all I want is salad. How’s the weather by you? I’ve been dodging the heat for the air-conditioned food stores here in NYC every day.

And after spending hours soaking up the cool air in Whole Foods Market last week, I landed upon their fabulous organic berries that looked so plump and perfect. Next thing I knew it was an hour later and I was at the register purchasing four pints of their pretty organic blueberries.

Ha. Time flies when you’re having fun.

Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing Lunch

Am I the only one that has fun in Whole Foods Market? I swear I could live there. I’d pull up a sleeping bag right between the avocados and the zucchini.

Not kidding.

Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing Recipe

Anyway, back to this healthy salad recipe … I’ve been craving this sweet salad every afternoon since I bought those berries.

All you need is some fresh lettuce (I love Earthbound Farms), organic blueberries, coconut flakes, lemon juice, flax seeds and fresh cilantro!

Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing Ingredients

I know I’ve chatted with you before about my love affair with summer salads.  Sweet, fresh, organic summer salads….Ahhhhhhh.

Blueberry Salad

Aren’t they the best?

Grab a large bowl and a whisk away.

Fill up your bowl with these simple organic ingredients and you’re on your way to salad heaven.

That’s it.

Now, don’t forget your sunscreen!

Blueberry Salad with Coconut Cilantro Dressing.

Have a great week. I hope the sun is shining for all of you today. (I’m headed back to Whole Foods Market for more organic blueberries and air conditioning!)

And if you wanna get in on the Whole Foods Market goodness, head on over to my facebook page today for a $75 Gift Certificate Giveaway to any of their stores. You can leave a comment on this post to enter! I’ll be picking a winner tonight.

    This looks delicious. I have never been a huge blueberry fan (unless in pancakes or muffins) but this year I gave them a try again on their own, and I have to admit they were rather delicious. I have also been adding them to my smoothies as well. Will have to give this a try at some point. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipes.

    Blueberry salad! I am definitely going to make this today, without the cilantro. Sadly, I’m one of the 20% that can’t eat the stuff. And I live in Austin, so that makes it a pretty difficult affliction! But, everything else about this salad sounds perfect to me. And I live a mile from the flagship Whole Foods!

    Blueberries are my favorite. I have trouble getting them to grow here in our soil. Three attempts failing so I have to buy my berries. Love Whole Foods because it is like I grew them myself in my garden with their freshness, and organic. The salad looks wonderful for a great meal.

    Only recently have I found coconut tolerable, but I have to say that coconut oil for cooking has some amazing properties. (However, I still cannot stand to smell it in my shampoo or sunscreen). My husband and I have been ramping up on our salad intake, but he complains when I add fruit and also he is one of those people who think cilantro tastes like soap. (It has been proven that a certain segment of the population actually does experience the flavor of cilantro as a soap taste). Personally, I love fruit in salads. My favorite features of this salad recipe are the seeds and the dressing is part of the recipe and not just “top with dressing of your choice.”

    I love Whole Foods, too, I feel like I’m on a safari, adventuring through the isles, discovering and learning about new foods and products all the time! The recently had a great sale on organic blueberries, and I indulged!! But my creations pale compared to this yummy recipe – it sings with sunny cheer! I love the idea of pairing cilantro with a summer salad that includes fruit! Nice idea. I laugh b/c I’m at Whole Foods almost every day, not always buying, but it is soooo much fun! I love the flowers, too. I have taken so many pictures of the flowers, even some of their creative artwork made by their signmakers from repurposed materials. I love that my local Whole Foods store will get new items that I’ve learned about on the web. Their cheese department is sooo amazing. I just finished reading their recent book Conscious Capitalism, you MUST read it! The name and cover look a little staid/boring, but it is very interesting, and if you already love Whole Foods, you will be even moreso. I can’t stop chatting up Whole Foods!!! I used to have access to a huge amount of blueberries, from someone who grows organic blueberries, but I’m thrilled I can still have them from Whole Foods and find a few knock-your-socks off recipes like this one! Thank you!!

    Blueberries are amazing in everything! I love the blueberry and pumpkin seed combo you have goin’ on here. If I win that Ninja, I’ll sure as heck use blueberries in my first blend sesh. :)

    Ninja! I would LOVE one. I’ve been doing a lot of juicing, but I don’t have a high powered blender for smoothies. Thanks so much for sharing all the freebies!

    Love berries in a salad! I love how you incorporate so many flavors in your recipes. I never would of thought to mix coconut and cilantro- cant wait to try this salad!! And I would be right next to you sleeping in whole foods- so many great things under one roof!

    I’m excited to try coconut oil as a dressing ingredient! I use it for cooking/baking but never thought for a dressing! Thanks for the great idea!
    P.S. This salad looks delicious!

    Thanks for sharing- this is delicious! I just made the salad for a graduation party and it disappeared before I knew it! Even the 18 year old graduate who has never agreed to eat fruit in his salad enjoyed it. Love the coconut mix in the dressing-and it is such a refreshing and tasty meal. Thanks for continuing to make living gluten free and vegetarian so stress free, wonderful and delicious! And thanks also for posting such wonderful give aways. I’d love to stop fighting with my blender and enjoy the endless smoothies and treats from the ninja!

    This looks so fresh and delicious. I just bought coconut oil from Trader Joe’s, knowing that there are hundreds of uses for it, but haven’t opened it. Maybe this will be my first dish with it! Thanks for the recipe.

    Definitely not the only one who has a great time at Whole Foods… It’s my stress reliever to shop there! Lol. Love the addition of pumpkin seeds to this salad, too.

    I love summer salads with berries. Thanks for the idea- wouldn’t have thought to put cilantro and coconut oil together for dressing. Any ideas for preparing kohlrabi, hakurei turnips, Swiss chard, kale, and/or fennel?

    Oh that recipe sounds so great! I have tons of strawberries in the garden right now, I bet it would be good with those too! I hope to win the ninja so I can get some smoothies going!

    Love Whole Foods Market almost as much as I love blueberries! And adding cilantro into the mix well that’s just about heaven. Adding fresh herbs into my diet as an anti-aging measure for the past year or two. I’ll be incorporating this recipe into my diet!
