I love the combination of flavors and textures in this salad. The soft sweet burst of blueberries with the crunchy walnuts and velvety goat cheese is so satisfying. Adding the freshly toasted walnuts with honey melts the goat cheese and creates a creamy dressing with olive oil and lemon juice. It is so flavorful you won’t even realize you are eating spinach. Enjoy!
