I would like to start by saying “Thank You” to all the brave men and women who died while defending our freedom and liberty while serving in our military.

Memorial Day | afoodieaffair.com

I thought I’d put a twist on the usual Caprese Salad this Memorial Day, and add some blue to the red and white. I added a few blueberries! It not only looks great and tastes great, but blueberries are super good for you!

This salad is super easy, and super delicious, and very Patriotic!

Next time you want to throw together a great salad in no time at all, this is your go to salad.

I found this great Garlic Balsamic Dressing recipe on Lauren’s Latest blog which I pinned from Pinterest, and it is delicious! Try this, you won’t be disappointed!
