Wowzers! Ten stars any day! The dressing is absolutely divine! The combo of flavors going on here is simply delicious. I used fresh blueberries, as we don't like the dried ones. And pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts because I had a tub of these on hand. But no matter, you could drizzle the dressing on stale toast and it would be amazing. This one is going straight into my Best of 2021 file...

Lovely salad, Mikekey. All the ingredients make this salad shine right through, but the dressing is the cherry on the top; loved the lavender in it and you haven’t tried lavender, well, you definitely should try it! I wasn't able to find dried blueberries, therefore, used fresh and added dried cranberries. I forgot to add the toasted pine nuts for the initial picture, but soon realized it, and we had it over the top; they made the salad taste even better. YUM! Thank you, Mikekey, for sharing. Made it for PickMe tag.
