This is our go-to summer salad! I use fresh nectarine slices, but you could really use any berry/stone fruit combo. Definitely a keeper!

This was so good!!! Looking forward to blueberries being in season again to make this! Even such a simple marinade for the chicken was so delicious!

Delicious main dish salad that's perfect for warm, summer days. I've made this twice - once with the blueberries and oranges, and once with blueberries and strawberries in place of the oranges. Both were delicious and I've found that I have to double the recipe because my family enjoys it so much! Thanks for the great recipe!

This was a hit with my husband and 3 kids. A definite keeper! The only change I made was making my own blueberry sauce from hand-picked blueberries instead of using blueberry preserves. YUMMY!
