This recipe was created by Chef Nancy Jessup executive chef at Mangia restaurants in New York. It is SO good and refreshing! I will post a picture when I make it again for our Memorial Day gathering. :) It uses blueberries both whole in the salald and pureed in the dressing. Spinach, Granny Smith apples and toasted walnuts make it special!
