With only three ingredients, it’s a great option for a quick lunch or side dish. And it makes enough for a couple of days or several servings. Though I recommend waiting to mix the yogurt until you are serving it if you do plan on making it up ahead of time.

Tips for Making This Easy Blueberry Spinach Salad

  • Spinach Selection: Baby spinach is ideal for this salad because it’s tender and won’t overpower the other flavors. If you prefer a different green, choose something with a mild flavor like arugula or a spring mix.
  • Blueberry Bliss: Fresh blueberries are best, but frozen blueberries that have been thawed and patted dry will work in a pinch.
  • Dressing Perfection: Make sure you choose a blueberry yogurt that is nice and thick. We usually use a regular yogurt, but honestly a Greek yogurt is a great choice. To prevent the dressing from getting watery, whisk the yogurt well before adding the other ingredients.
  • Storage Smarts: This salad is best enjoyed fresh, but if you need to make it ahead, store the dressing and salad components separately. Toss everything together just before serving.

Storing Leftover Salad

This Easy Blueberry Spinach Salad is all about enjoying those bright, vibrant flavors. Here are some tips to keep it tasting its best:

  • Fresh is Best: This salad is a quick assemble, so aim to enjoy it right after making it. The spinach will stay crispest and the blueberries will burst with the most flavor fresh off the prep.
  • Separate Strategies: If you must make it ahead, store the dressing and salad components separately. The dressing, especially if yogurt-based, can wilt the spinach. Keep the salad greens in an airtight container in the fridge, and whip up the dressing when you’re ready to eat.
  • Berry Careful: Fresh blueberries can get mushy if stored with the salad. Keep them washed and dried in a separate container until serving.
