Blueberry Sweet Potato Granola Salad

Written by chanie on June 11th, 2015

I gave you a sneak peek at this light summer salad a few weeks ago, and I’m so excited to finally share it here for keeps! Credit for this awesome combination actually goes to a restaurant named “BLUEBERRY” on Avenue M in Brooklyn. It’s a family-friendly place with fluorescent green walls (not their finest choice) and some great outdoor seating. I love to take my kids there because they’ve got great kid food and a frozen yogurt bar to boot! They’ve also got some really great salads on the menu, like a version of this blueberry salad (you’ve got to make a mean salad if it’s literally got your NAME written all over it, right?), and a delicious haloumi salad with grilled veggies and a sesame teriyaki dressing. I must reinvent that one next! They’ve also got an assortment of malawach and shakshuka, and you all know how I love me some Israeli food.

Thanks to Blueberry for giving me the awesome idea of putting granola on a salad, it’s such a fun way to add crunch, especially during the summer months. Enjoy!

    Looks yummy, How many servings is the salad? How many servings is the granola mix?

      The salad can serve 6 as an appetizer. As for the granola, do you mean the one I linked to in the post? That makes quite a bit (about 2 1/2 cups), so feel free to halve the recipe (if you’re only using it for the salad).

    Woo-Hoo!!! Grazing around for something sensational to serve with lemon-herb marinated grilled chicken. Kaboom! You nailed it for me. So tired of “regular” potato salad, even though I make about 756 killer ones.

        Hi Chanie:
        You should know that we live in Idaho, so potatoes are central to the very core of our being. That said, a few fave combos are: 1) very finely minced sundried tomatoes, finely shredded basil, finely chopped kalamata olives, dress with oil & vinegar. 2) very finely chopped daikon radish, finely shredded basil, coarsely chopped celery, coarsely chopped peanuts, dress with a wasabi vinaigrette. 3) Make a mayo-based dressing with a spicy salsa, add some lime for zing. Any kind of potato works; we usually use yukon golds. Hope this sparks some creative combos for you. Enjoy!!!!
