Have made this salad many times since it posted here. It is a healthy and delish recipe!

I double the dressing recipe so I can have some for later and use 2 Tablespoons of honey instead of 1 teaspoon. Everyone I know who has tried this salad likes it. I never thought to add blueberries, mint & cucumbers all together in a salad. THANKS!
