Israeli couscous salad with fresh corn, blueberries, and tarragon.

Blueberry season is among us! Every year I like to go blueberry picking at Mercer Slough in Bellevue, Washington. My family goes complete ham and comes home with pounds and pounds of blueberries. A lot of them end up in my morning smoothies, but I like to reserve some for no or minimally-cooked dishes during the dog days of summer.

Enter this Israeli couscous salad recipe. When mixed with corn and high-quality extra virgin olive oil, the blueberries add a glorious burst of juice and sweetness to an otherwise savory dish.

Read on for an easy salad recipe that’s about to become your new summer staple.

This is JM Cellars, one of the wineries that made it onto my list of the best Woodinville wineries.

If you’ve seen my past guides to PNW wineries, you know I have a near reverence for wine. I’m constantly researching places to try and sipping my way through the best wineries in the region.

I’ve explored most of the wine districts in the area, so I’ll break down the areas and give you a local’s perspective on the best Woodinville wineries.
