End of Summer Salad with Feta & Blueberries

This is another great salad, very quick and easy to prepare. It makes a light and refreshing lunch, but also would be perfect for (end of) summer parties and picnics. Fresh sweet blueberries pair here beautifully with salty and tangy taste of creamy feta. We topped it with roasted pumpkin seeds and added cucumber, red pepper and apple, which give a wonderful combination of crunchy textures.
