Blueberry Peach Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

It is snowing outside and despite the fact that it is November, I am shocked.  Warm autumn afternoons lulled me away into the belief that fall weather would last forever.  When the temperature drops, I abandon raw salads for warm squashes and vegetable soups because my body craves and needs warmth from my food.  But despite the coldness, this salad is amazing.  The combination of blueberries and peaches with cucumbers and belle peppers satisfies even my two-year-old.

Don’t be tempted to make the dressing in a large quantity for the future…I learned the hard way that this dressing is simply better fresh.
