Blueberry Hazelnut Salad with a Blueberry Honey Dressing

My husband and I love blueberry season! Blueberry pancakes, fresh blueberries on your cereal or blueberries topped with yogurt, it’s all delicious. With the Northeast in mind, where blueberries are abundant and hazelnuts are very popular, I came up with this salad using fresh lettuces out of the garden. The honey in the dressing gives a sweetness that complements it all well. Enjoy blueberry season.
