Triple B Spinach Salad With Blueberry Pomegranate Dressing

Updated: Dec 24, 2018


This Triple B Spinach Salad with Blueberry Pomegranate Dressing is an original recipe I created and entered into the #BlueberryToss Contest for the 2016 Food and Wine Conference. The Food and Wine Conference is a food blogger conference where bloggers can attend to learn new skills to improve their blog or to expand their blog into other areas. It takes place annually in Orlando, FL and this year’s conference is from May 13-15, 2016.


I am excited to be able to attend this year's conference since this will be my second time attending and I had a blast last year! I can't wait to experience it again and learn more about what is going on in the world of blogging. Last year I learned so much from all of the speakers, made new blogger friends and ate so much food that I can't wait to see what is in store for this year's conference. Make sure to follow me on social media since I will be posting pictures of all the events and of course the food during the conference.


Wish Farms is one of the sponsors of this year’s conference and they specialize in growing strawberries and blueberries in Florida. They grow some of the most delicious blueberries and strawberries in the State of Florida.  I can testify how delicious their berries are because the supermarket by my house carries their blueberries and strawberries and I buy them often. I put their blueberries in my oatmeal for breakfast and eat the strawberries as a snack or with lunch or dinner.


Wish Farms along with the Food and Wine Conference are hosting a recipe contest for food bloggers to develop a creative and original salad recipe using at least one serving of blueberries. My Triple B Spinach Salad contains blueberries, beans and bulgur wheat over a bed of spinach leaves.  It's topped off with some strawberries, sunflower seeds, crispy onions, chopped pecans and let's not forget a tangy blueberry pomegranate dressing.
