Recipe: Ginger Scented Blueberry Salad

Blueberries and peaches are in full summer swing right now!  Not only are they at their peak, but they’re at their cheapest for the year.  Everything is less expensive when it’s in season.  If you shop from a farmers’ market, there’s a good chance your peaches were picked yesterday.  Besides, blueberries are one of the most American foods we have – blueberry bushes are native to North America; a single bush can produce up to 6,000 berries a year!
